Rev Madeleine Russell will be leading the discussion about the place Mary plays in both Islam and Christianity – she appears in both the Bible and the Koran. The Group have talked about some aspects of this previously and have enjoyed this – the Muslims and Christians among them were able to think about someone they know about in their own faith from the perspective of another person’s faith. Women from other faiths also enjoyed the discussion. This session will however be stand-alone – you do not need to have been at previous ones.
If you want to know more about St. Augustine’s Centre and its location, go to www.staugustinescentre.org.uk. In brief it is on Hanson Lane beside St Augustine’s Primary School and nearly opposite the entrance to Hanson Lane Enterprise Centre – sometimes known as HOTS. If you can find Lightowler Road or Victoria Road you are nearly there! Hanson Lane buses don’t run in the evenings but you could catch a bus to Pellon Lane and walk across – it’s only a few minutes.
