The Knox Inter-faith Network (the Network) was established under a constitution approved in October 2002. (The Network has since become an incorporated body.)  The Network aims to encourage understanding of religious communities in the area covered by the Knox City Council in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. We seek to enable these religious communities to be good neighbours with each other and the broader community through a program of dialogue, education and visitation, involving:
  • Opportunities to discuss matters of common concern in an open and friendly environment.

  • Informative presentations by member communities about the basic tenets of their faith.

  • Tours of places of worship in the Knox City Council area to learn about their significant aspects.

    The Knox Inter-faith Network supports strongly the ability of all people in the Knox area, as well as in Melbourne, Victoria and Australia more broadly, to have a free choice of faith, which includes the ability to choose to follow no faith.  Consistent with this, the Network supports strongly and unanimously the following statement made by the Faith Communities Council of Victoria.
