A recording of our Dialogue & Debate webinar, streamed live on Wednesday 7 July at 11am. This discussion explores one of the key issues highlighted in our Faith & Belief 2040 report - the changing role and wider community use of religious buildings in the UK, in our increasingly multicultural, interfaith society.

The webinar is hosted by our Chief Executive, Dr Ed Newell, with guest panellists, an audience poll, and audience questions. The four guest panellists are:

  • Sarwat Tasneem - Founder, 14-Consulting; Fellow, The Centre of Conscious Design
  • Eddie Tulasiewicz - Head of Communications and Public Affairs, National Churches Trust
  • Jagdev Singh Virdee - General Secretary, Guru Nanak Darbar Gurdwara, Gravesend; Editor, British Sikh Report
  • Will Watt - Director, State of Life (authors of The House of Good report for the National Churches Trust, 2021)


This webinar is part of our regular series of Dialogue & Debate webinars, which explores pressing issues of social cohesion in the UK, involving guest speakers from a range of sectors and perspectives. Our webinars are live-streamed on Zoom, on the first Wednesday of each month, at 11am. Recordings are shared afterwards, to access on demand.
