St Philip's Centre
Thanks to generous funding from the M B Reckitt Trust, the St Philip’s Centre has developed a focused study programme for Christians who live and minister in diverse contexts. We will hear from Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, and Christian perspective on the inter-community relations in Leicester and the wider geopolitical context, as well as facilitating reflective discussion amongst those participating in the study programme. Our speakers are all well versed in the issues, although none are academic specialists in the topic. This is deliberate – we want the voices of ordinary people to be heard. The hope is that through facilitating engagement with this complex topic, focused on understanding the experience and perspectives of people of South Asian heritage in Leicester, we can equip people of influence to make more informed decisions as to how to best respond to the ongoing tensions, and so build a stronger, more cohesive society.
