We offer Educational and Enlightenment Workshops and Seminars on Christian-Muslim Relations.
A Nigeria where Christian and Muslim communities in spite of their differences work together for justice, peace and reconciliation towards the holistic development of the human family and the environment.
The Centre commented informal lectures during the administration of Governor Ahmed Makarfi in 2004 and had two graduation ceremonies. It was formally opened as a Registered Study Centre on 8th August with registration number CAC/IT/NO 55171 by The Most Revd. Dr. Idowu Fearon, the then Bishop of the Diocese of Kaduna, but now the Secretary-General, Anglican Communion Worldwide, the founder and Director of the Centre.
Over the years and till date, it has been effectively engaged in running Enlightenment Programs and Programmes for Christian and Muslim faithfuls as would foster better knowledge and understanding of Islam and Muslims thus facilitating interfaith cooperative behaviour in an atmosphere of harmony and peaceful coexistence so vital to all-round sectoral development.
The Study Centre Initiative has therefore been focused on running Certificate and Diploma Programmes mainly on Islam and Christian faiths as would equip our registered Christian and Muslim Clerics, Leaders and Lay faithfuls with adequate knowledge and understanding of Muslims and Islamic doctrines, precepts and practices.
In addition, the Programmes are designed for the candidates from both religious backgrounds to acquire relevant knowledge of the common scriptural background despite differences in the two major religions.
Just as from its inception, Vocational Workshops, Seminars and corresponding Programs are organized through the sessions for interested candidates of both Religions.
