This paper provides a broad introduction to aspects of the origins, nature and development of what became the Multi-Faith Centre at the University of Derby (http://www.multifaithcentre.org). It offers reflections both on this Centre itself, as well as on what might be learned from it for the wider journey from inter-religious encounter to inter-religious commitment. The paper highlights some of the practical motivations involved in the development of the Centre in the context of a University seeking to meet the needs of, and address the issues arising from, an increasingly diverse student and staff body and local community. It explores the relational (and for some, including the author, theological) ethics that have informed the translation of the Centre’s original vision into an operating reality, including some of the “issues” with which the Centre has had to wrestle on its journey so far.
