Westminster Faith Exchange

Within the City of Westminster there are many places of worship and a diverse range of faith communities: from Baha'i, Hindu, Jain, Jewish, Muslim, Sikh and Zoroastrian through to the many Christian denominations.

The Westminster Faith Exchange (WFE) is a long-standing initiative to facilitate and encourage dialogue between the council and the different faith communities.

The Westminster Faith Exchange is chaired by Councillor Ruth Bush, and is deputy chaired by Councillor Gotz Mohindra. WFE's programme is managed by an executive committee of faith group representatives.
