Do inter-faith marriages work? That’s the big question that will be addressed by experts at the annual meeting of the North Herts Inter Faith Forum next week.
The business part of the meeting at Hitchin’s Walsworth Street Baptist Church will be followed by a presentation by guest speakers including Julian Bond, the director of Christian Muslim Forum, Tehmina Kazi of British Muslims for Secular Democracy, and Zara Afzal, director of Hidden Heart, a documentary about inter-faith marriage which looked at the emotional and familial relationship challenges faced by British Muslim women who marry outside their faith and culture.
The film, which is still being completed, has already received support from Channel 4 News front man Jon Snow, who has donated to a crowd funding appeal towards the film’s completion and outreach campaign
The Forum, which is chaired by Hitchin’s team rector the Rev Michael Roden, has Christian, Buddhist, Hindu, Sikh, Muslim and Jewish membership and a tradition of putting on joint events and seminars.
