South­well & Not­ting­ham

The Church of England - - NEWS -

Five Imams were in­vited to South­well Min­is­ter for tea and a guided tour on Thurs­day 6 Fe­bru­ary. The pur­pose of the visit was to meet the Bishop and see the Min­is­ter, with the idea of in­tro­duc­ing the Imams to the Angli­can Church hi­er­ar­chy, the liturgy and church ad­min­is­tra­tion, as part of their in­ter­faith de­vel­op­ment. Di­rec­tor of the Karimia In­sti­tute, Asif Ali, ar­rived with four other Imams – two hav­ing re­cently left Syria be­cause of the un­rest — and Bishop Tony was there to meet them. The Bishop said: “We want to con­tinue a good per­sonal re­la­tion­ship with our friends in the Mus­lim faith; we work to­gether care­fully and have a com­mon con­cern for the marginalised.”
