How should Christians relate to Muslims? In a society increasingly polarised and divided by fear, what does it mean for Christians to love their Muslim neighbours as they love themselves? Gaining understanding of Islam is a necessary place from which to begin. This day course will provide you with an opportunity to dig a bit deeper into how Muslims live out their faith in the UK today. The morning session will focus on the understanding of modern British Islam and the afternoon on discussing how Christians and Muslims are to engage with one another. The day will be taught by Dilwar Hussain and Tom Wilson.
