Croydon North Deanery are starting a Muslim/Christian Scriptural Reasoning study group in which they compare, contrast and discuss passages from the Quran and The Bible.  

They had an initial meeting in January.  It was agreed that this was very interesting and developed consideration of our own respective faiths.  

The current focus on Christian/Islam relations led to a discussion of the possibilities of widening the discussion to Hindus and Sikhs. This remains a possibility.  The group felt that "the challenge with secularism and lack of faith across society is better challenged by bringing people of different faiths together and living out our respective faiths with mutual respect in a secular society". 

There is absolutely no intention of this group being a conversion activity. 

If you are interested in attending the date of next meeting  is 7.00pm, Thursday 23rd  April 2020at St. Philip’s Vicarage, 22 Beech Road, Norbury SW16 4NW  - Muslims and Christians from any Mosques and Churches in Norbury, Thornton Heath, South Norwood, Upper Norwood, West Croydon, Woodside areas welcome. 

You do not need to be a scholar!
