Auckland, with over 220 recorded ethnic groups, is one of the world’s most culturally diverse cities. Every neighbourhood has people of many faiths living side by side. To enhance social cohesion and help prevent misunderstandings or prejudice, it is important for people to be able to learn about religious beliefs and practices, and dialogue with those from other faiths.

Auckland Inter-Faith Council (AIFC) was formed to provide a platform for inter-religious dialogue and networking, and to create a model showing cooperation among religions.

Events are held at different community and faith venues throughout the greater Auckland region.
