2018 National Interfaith ForumChristchurch23/03/2018 12:00 a.m.25/03/2018 11:59 p.m.
2018 National Interfaith Forum to be held in Christchurch from 23 to 25 March The Canterbury Interfaith Society is pleased to announced the date of the 2018 National Interfaith Forum. Finding a free weekend proves quite difficult, and trying to take into consideration the request to have it during a warmer time of the year and not to have it at the end of Feb., which is difficult for some, we have decided upon this date. It is however, Palm Sunday on the 25th and we will make allowances for this and may even make it an optional part of the forum for attendees to take part in this Christian service.
