Our next "Hot Topics" events (18th January and 15th February) will look at issues around identity... The January event will look at how there has been a spike in racism around the Brexit vote, while February's will examine the myths and misunderstandings surrounding the role of women in Islam.
The centre seeks to work through teaching, learning, resourcing, equipping, and facilitating encounter and reflection in multiple ways.
¨ at the grassroots, to engage people and churches and raise awareness of the need for Christians to encounter Muslim people and develop an understanding of the Islamic faith, traditions and practices;
¨ by developing specific classes and programmes that explore ways Christians can encounter and engage with Islam in local and global settings;
¨ partnering with others to train people engaged in mission;
¨ developing research-led practice in relation to Islam and Christianity; with academic excellence, resourcing the global church with specialists.
