Understanding Islam

The Understanding Islam course offered by Ammerdown as part of its commitment to inter-faith relations has been developed over decades by Chris Hewer and delivered at Ammerdown for several years. Participants are invited to take a critical journey to understand Islam through the eyes of those who follow it. If you would like a foretaste of what’s on offer, please visit www.chrishewer.org.  The course is conducted in manageable groups as an interactive seminar with opportunities for questions and discussion throughout. Prior enquiries can be sent by e-mail to Chris via the contact form on his website. If we want to build a multi-faith, multi-cultural society in Britain, then surely we need to understand the faith of our Muslim fellow citizens.

Chris Hewer has built a reputation at Ammerdown for being an exceptional scholar and teacher with an outstanding understanding and love of Islam and a passion for sharing it with others. Chris comes from a background in Christian theology, education, Islamic studies and inter-faith studies, and has worked in the field of Muslims in Britain and Christian-Muslim relations since 1986. For more information about Chris and his work go to www.chrishewer.org

“Excellent presentation & engagement & material. And all done with such grace… I particularly liked the course spread over five days; made it feel like a retreat as well as a course.” (Participant 2017)

*Cost: This course is being subsidised by the Ammerdown Centre but if cost is still an issue , please enquire.

 

Led by: Dr Chris Hewer

Please arrive by noon on Monday. Course ends with lunch on Friday.
