The Frankston Interfaith Network is comprised of individuals from diverse religious and spiritual backgrounds who share a common vision of promoting peace and harmony in Frankston City. Members represent groups including: Anglican, Bahá'í, Brahma Kumaris, Buddhism, Catholic, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Hinduism, Islam, Sathya Sai Baba, Sikh, Unification church and those of no particular faith tradition.
As neighbours we recognise that we have a responsibility to ourselves, our local community and the wider world to put aside prejudices or intolerance and to work towards a peaceful co-existence.
We acknowledge the difference between our beliefs but also acknowledge the similar core values found at the heart of each of our faith traditions such as peace, love, non-violence, right action, truth and respect.
What we do
We meet monthly and offer educational and awareness programs and workshops on issues of faith, religion and culture in Frankston City and surrounding areas, such as:
- 'Tours to Places of Worship' for members of the public and other interested groups. Members host a bus tour and participants are welcomed at the various places of worship, including those from both Eastern and Western spiritual traditions. An informal atmosphere allows for questions and discussion
- 'Talks on matters of 'Religion', 'Faith' and 'Spirituality' held in community venues for the general public
- Act as an advisory group to Frankston City Council
