Inter-faith dialogue at grassroots level is vital to the building of a peaceful world. This year’s Beach Lecture will feature a Christian and a Muslim leader talking about what they have learned in their own experiences of inter-faith community-building and the effects of inter-faith dialogue on their own religious commitment. Each of them contributed to a recent book, edited by Dr Shimada – Mapping Faith: Theologies of Migration and Communitywhich was published last year by Jessica Kingsley.

Discounts on the purchase of the book will be available to those who register for the lecture

An interactive Q&A will follow the lecture – please note, only registrants to the webinar will be able to submit their questions.

We look forward to seeing you!
