My Neighbour’s Home Is My Home – Free Educational Sessions

Categories: Events

A Christian and Muslim series of educational events, working to build interfaith relations in today’s society, drawing on our common roots and appreciating our differences. Each session will present both a Muslim and a Christian perspective. These are 2 hour sessions followed by a break and a question and answer period. During the break, Muslims and Christians will have a 5 minute time of prayer in separate locations. Prayer is one of the things that unite us. All sessions are free, but a basket for Free-Will donations will be at the door. The donations will go towards the Anglican and Muslim Uganda parish projects.
