Centre for the Study of Islam in the Contemporary World

Transform & Connect

A creative Muslim-Christian project delivered in partnership with the Church of Scotland.

Project participants prepare for their trip to Ghana

As part of this unique interfaith project, a group of 12 Muslim and Christian faith leaders from across Scotland embarked on a life-changing trip to Ghana to explore and develop faith relations.

A creative partnership between the Church of Scotland, the Alwaleed Centre, the Christian-Muslim Studies Network, Interfaith Scotland and Al-Maktoum College, 'Transform and Connect' involved prison chaplains of both faiths, a former Moderator of the Church of Scotland, community activists and academics. Each participant brought with them a specific area of interest which was explored in the Ghanaian context in order to learn tangible lessons that could be applied back in Scotland. The project also aimed to build relationships between key Scottish Muslim and Chritsian leaders that could benefit communities across the country.
