  • "It was just brilliant. People were saying today [last day of the course] that it has transformed their whole understanding and attitude, they just want to go out and love people that come from the Muslim community now, with full understanding of - everybody's different. They have a huge amount of insight, but that's too much to go into detail - take the course!" - Course Tutor reflecting on student feedback.

Who is the course for?

This course takes place in December every year and is designed for those who have a particular interest in Muslim people. If you are currently involved in or preparing to work in Muslim countries or among ethnic minorities in the West, or if you are simply interested in studying Islam, then you will find this course invaluable.

What is the programme?

Amidst current world realities many are asking "what are we to think?", "what are we to do?" and this course gives you the opportunity to learn from a range of speakers sharing insights from a depth of experience and academic understanding. This course aims to enable Christians to better understand the roots and realities of Islam and how to respond in a way that is Biblical, sensitive, informed and bold. Sessions will include lectures and interactive case studies, role plays and practical activities related to engaging with Muslims.
