Teaching Seminar

Islam and the Gospel

In this seminar we are addressing some key questions that emerge from our experience of welcoming immigrants and refugees:
  • How can we understand the times we are living in now in Europe?
  • What purpose does the Lord have amongst Muslims in Europe?
  • What is the narrative of mission that is being played out in Europe – and beyond?
  • What 21st century Gospel story is the Lord inviting us to be a part of?
We will look for biblical insight as we try to answer these questions and consider how we can respond to the opportunities that are before us.
