Anglicanism and Islam
We are an English speaking Anglican Church, part of the Church of England, which is part of the worldwide Anglican Communion.
Often we meet people, who may ask – what does it mean to be Anglican? Or, how is Anglican different from Reformed, or Roman Catholic or Pentecostal? Or what gifts or insights does Anglicanism offer to the wider Christian Church.
Through 2016-2017, within the wider Chaplaincy, we have been running a great course called Anglicanism: A gift in Christ, which seeks to answer these questions through DVD input and discussion.
Each session has an authority on that field teaching for 30-40minutes on DVD. As the DVD was recorded at a teaching conference, there is a further recorded 10-15 minutes of Questions and Answers from a panel . After that DVD input, we move into discussion about what we think and how we felt about the teaching and questions raised and answers given.
The poster shows the topics we have been covering.
Our Course ends with our final topic focusing on Anglicanism and Islam. We meet at Holy Trinity Utrecht Parsonage (which is beside the Church, number 26). Arrive before 8pm if you’d like a coffee or tea. Starts at 8pm and ends at 9.30pm. You do need to pay for parking…
The DVD talk is by Anglican Bishop Josiah Idowu-Fearon of Nigeria. Bishop Josiah, is now Archbishop of Kaduna in Nigeria and a proponent of Christian-Muslim Dialogue in Nigeria. Idowu-Fearon is a co-founder of the Centre for the Study of Islam and Christianity at Kaduna and area leader for the Programme for Christian-Muslim Relations in Africa (PROCMURA).
