Interfaith Activities

SSA is represented in the Inter-religious and Inter-racial Confidence Circles (IRCC) of Tampines West, Cashew and Hong Kah North constituencies. The IRCC network provides opportunities for residents at the respective localities to engage in learning about each other’s faith and religious tradition.

The SSA Youth Division organised the First Youth for Peace Interfaith Symposium held at the Singapore Expo on 16 March 2008. Guest of Honour, then Minister for Foreign Affairs, Mr George Yeo, delivered the keynote speech on the Symposium’s theme “Humanising Religions, Creating Peace” to an audience of 4,000 guests from different religious faith in Singapore and youth representatives from Asia’s Soka Gakkai International organisations.

Besides organising and participating in inter-faith dialogues and symposium, SSA also participates in Inter-Religious Organisation initiatives to foster friendship and understanding amongst different faith organisations.

SSA is committed to the Declaration on Religious Harmony that was introduced in July 2003. The spirit of the Declaration is regularly shared with the members at activities held to promote interfaith dialogue.

SSA has been participating actively in inter-faith activities in the local community, as part of our efforts to promote the understanding of different religious perspectives in this multi-cultural society of Singapore. SSA youths have also collaborated with Mercy Relief on expeditions to Cambodia, Philippines and Indonesia.
