Faith Network 4 Manchester

Faith Network 4 Manchester (FN4M) is an interfaith forum in Manchester and part of the Community Network 4 Manchester (CN4M).  Our aims are to bring together people of different faith groups across the city to speak to issues of regeneration, to act as a means of communication between faith groups and be a resource to address issues of common concern, and of course to participate in the Community Network and LSP structure. Over time FN4M has developed into an able and committed body that delivers effective tools for engagement through conferences, meetings, newsletters, website etc.
