Welcome to Watford Interfaith Association

Watford Interfaith Association (WIFA) is a local interfaith organisation which was established in 1977 and is a member of the Inter Faith Network for the UK.

WIFA welcomes people from all faiths to come together in friendship, to learn about each other's faith and to work together for the well-being of all communities in Watford and Southwest Hertfordshire.

WIFA’s motto:
‘Living our Faith, Loving our neighbour’.
‘Faiths Listening, learning and working together’.

Through interfaith dialogue, WIFA promotes tolerance, understanding and mutual respect between people of all faiths. Whatever the differences between the faiths, WIFA believes that based on shared ethical views religious people and groups can work together with great value in service to our wider society.
