Hot Topic: Beyond Dialogue – where does Christian-Muslim engagement lead?

Note: This is a change to the previously advertised schedule. Due to unforeseen circumstances, the session on “Domestic Violence in Asian Communities” will now be held at a later date.

We invite you to come, discover, learn, offer and share experience about this subject.

  • The history of relations between Christians and Muslims often has been an unhappy one, as illustrated by recent events affecting the Christian communities in the Middle East. With Muslims making up about 5% of the population of Britain, the engagement between Christians and Muslims is one the key issues facing society. How can two missionary faiths co-exist in positive and creative ways? This ‘Hot Topic’ explores the process of interfaith dialogue, using examples from three different groups; Taking a model developed in the Israel-Palestine context, we will ask whether this model can lead to mutually fruitful relationships between the Christian and the British Muslim communities.

    Join Rev. Canon Phil Rawlings (co-Director, MCSCI) as he leads discussion on how Christians and Muslims are, and should, be in dialogue with one another.

    All “Hot Topics” events will start at 18:30 and finish at 20:30 unless otherwise advertised.

    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!
