What Students Say

  • This course aims to enable Christians to better understand the roots and realities of Islam and to respond in a way that is Biblical, sensitive, informed and bold.
  • "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: Carol Walker Reflecting on Student Feedback. Dec 2016

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 is an invaluable course for all Christians, as we seek to engage and respond to Islam in a way that is Biblical, sensitive, informed and loving. That is why in 2018 All Nations, Frontiers, Interserve and Operation Mobilisation agreed to co-sponsor a Saturday event intertwined with the week's programme, so that course participants had the opportunity to invite church members, family or friends who might be curious to learn more.

    Following the success of the day event in 2018 we anticipate running a similar day event in 2019. Look out for further information in due course.
