Communicating our Faith Story in a Multi-Faith Context

8–12 June 2020 (Mon–Fri)

If you’ve ever wanted to know how you might discover more about the Qu’ran and about the faith and practice of your Muslim neighbours, and make the most of opportunities to share Jesus with them, then this week is for you.  Good conversations are the starting point and can be a transformational experience for all those involved. So how do we go about setting up such opportunities for mutual hospitality? Taking the stories of the Prophets as an example, Jan will help us to reflect on, wonder at and discover new ways of understanding and communicating our faith story.
