We are hosting the Annual European Meeting of PROCMURA: Programme for Christian-Muslim Relations in Africa over the weekend 22-24 January 2016. We have supported this organisation since its inception in 1959. The current Chair is Archbishop Dr Josiah Idowu-Fearon, who has recently been appointed Secretary General of the Anglican Communion Worldwide based in London. The groups who support PROCMURA are by and large well-established churches, or global charities/ngos with a Christian foundation, each with a commitment to furthering relations of mutual respect and dialogue between different faiths.
The Annual European Meeting of PROCMURA will begin with a public event on Friday 22nd January from 4.30 – 6.30 at the Royal Foundation of St Katharine’s, 2 Butcher Row, E14 8DS London. The opening address of the public event will be from Revd Dr Johnson Mbillah, General Advisor of PROCMURA highlighting issues related to Christian-Muslim relations on the continent of Africa.
