St Ethelburga's is a unique meeting space in the heart of the City of London devoted to exploring the relationship between faith and conflict by: a) bringing people together to share experience and learning about the role of faith in situations of conflict, and b) developing practical ways of assisting individuals and communities to use their faith to transform situations of conflict.

The wasteland behind St Ethelburga's Centre, derelict since the 1993 bomb, has been transformed into a remarkable space dedicated to the meeting of faiths. A rich programme of events has now started.

HRH The Prince of Wales opened on 4 May 2006 The Tent in the presence of representatives from nine faiths. Messages of support came from President Clinton, Bono, Edgar Bronfman and Archbishop Tutu.

The Tent is an atmospheric experimental meeting space where people of different faiths can come together to explore differences, transform conflicts, and to build firm foundations for collaboration. The programme includes inter-faith dialogue and discussion, analysis of sacred scripture, devotional gatherings, meditation, storytelling and music.
