Faith covers all aspects of religious belief and spirituality. Faith may not be tied to a particular defined religious belief or authority, but can also encompass any philosophy of living and being.

Edinburgh has a long association with religious movements, especially those associated with the development of Presbyterianism. Modern-day Edinburgh is a multi-faith city where the beliefs of all religious groups are respected, but where 45% residents included in the 2011 census professed to no religious belief.

Faith bodies have made and continue to make positive contributions to communities, to society and to the fostering of understanding and association between peoples.
