Hot Topic: Christian Minorities in the Muslim World

There are many parts of the world where Christians live as a minority in a largely Muslim context. Hear first-hand how this has an impact, and discuss what some of the implications are.

Join Rt Rev Irfan Jamil (Bishop of Lahore) for an evening of comparison, discussion and education.


The paper explains that what is a pressure and what does it mean by living as Minority, explaining the salient features of Muslim world and various different pressures that Christians of each country face. But the emphasis is on the situation in Pakistan, elaborating social, religious, economic and political pressures.

In the end practical suggestions are given to live as minority in Muslim World.

There will be tea, coffee and water available.

Each of these events is a forum for discussion, and will be linked together to form a series – initially with one event each month.

These events will normally take place on the first floor of the Emmanuel Centre at Nazarene Theological College. For directions and more information about the college, please see the NTC (event venue) page.

There is no formal charge – however, we do ask for a donation towards the running costs of the centre, and suggest £10 per session would be appropriate. Feel free to give more if you can afford to – and less if you cannot.
If you pay UK Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax, please also complete our Gift Aid form, so we can claim tax relief on your donation back from the government. This makes your donation worth more, at no extra cost to you!
