Questions of dialogue and evangelism will be discussed at a half–day seminar on Inter Faith issues to be held in Edgehill College, Belfast, on Friday March 2.
The conference, entitled ‘Engaging Diversity, Staying Faithful,’ is being organised by the Inter Faith Working Group of the Church of Ireland.
Speakers on the day will include the Rev Canon Dr Alan Race (former Dean of Postgraduate Studies at St Philip’s Centre for Study and Engagement in a Multifaith World, Leicester); Mr. Iain Stewart (Interfaith Development Worker with the Church of Scotland) and members of the Northern Ireland Inter–Faith Forum.
The seminar will begin with lunch at 1pm and finish at 6pm.
The Secretary of the Inter Faith Working Group, the Rev Darren McCallig, said: “Many Christians feel torn between wanting to engage constructively with those of other faiths while also remaining faithful to their own convictions. This half–day seminar will provide a space to address some of the theological, pastoral and practical implications of inter faith dialogue.”
The cost of the conference (including lunch and tea/coffee) is £20 or €25. Students may attend free of charge. The fee can be paid by cash or cheque on the day but those wishing to attend should register in advance with the Revd Darren McCallig by email firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone (+3531) 896 1402.
