WIFA is a local group and a member of the Inter Faith Network for the UK. We seek to implement the values of inter-faith dialogue and translate them into practical action in the diverse area of Watford and South West Hertfordshire.

WIFA is a multi-religious organisation, involving believers of the following faiths: Baha’i; Buddhism; Christianity; Hinduism; Islam; Judaism; Sikhism and Zoroastrianism. All others of any faith or none are welcome to participate.

WIFA is based upon respect for religious differences as well as the conviction that religious persons and groups can work together with great value on shared commitments for their community.

The Peace Garden has been reported in the national Interfaith Network e-bulletin:

Watford Interfaith Association Peace Garden
Watford Interfaith Association’s Peace Garden has been opened to the public by the Mayor Dorothy Thornhill, who is a patron, at a multi faith ceremony.
It contains a labyrinth with grassed seating, flower beds , special trees and a specially donated bench. It was initiated by the Watford Interfaith Association (WIFA) five years ago starting from a half acre plot of rough ground in the Orchard. Volunteers from various faith groups and others have worked hard to create the labyrinth from scratch and dug flower beds and mowed the long grass. Last Autumn many members of different faiths came together over two days to plant 2,000 bulbs in the garden.
