The Vision

The centre seeks to work through teaching, learning, resourcing, equipping, and facilitating encounter and reflection in multiple ways.

¨ at the grassroots, to engage people and churches and raise awareness of the need for Christians to encounter Muslim people and develop an understanding of the Islamic faith, traditions and practices;

¨ by developing specific classes and programmes that explore ways Christians can encounter and engage with Islam in local and global settings;

¨ partnering with others to train people engaged in mission;

¨ developing research-led practice in relation to Islam and Christianity; with academic excellence, resourcing the global church with specialists.
