During June 2017, Shepparton Interfaith Network will conduct interfaith meetings in Euroa, Numurkah, Benalla and Cobram. These meetings are offered in order that the community members might be able to listen to speakers from different religions and have their questions answered in an atmosphere of mutual respect and harmony. This program is called Believing, Bridging, Building and Bonding.
Believing, Bridging, Building and Bonding presents believers and adherents from Muslim, Buddhist, Sikh and Christian and multicultural groups to visit community centres and locations in the Goulburn Valley and present on understanding different faith and multicultural communities in this region. Believing, Bridging Building and Bonding will explore the best of shared Australian values which build, strengthen and assist in integration into new Australian identities. This is a journey of exploration in relationship to the various community hubs and community groups in the Goulburn Valley.
There will be four regional interfaith meetings in the Goulburn Valley.
