Christian Church Becomes First in the UK to Open Its Doors to Muslims

Here’s a very controversial move by an English pastor who believed he had no choice but to accommodate Muslims who were praying outside on Fridays in the wind and rain. Did he do what Jesus might have done?

A Scottish church has become the first in the UK to share its premises with Muslim worshippers.

St John’s Episcopal Church in Aberdeen now welcomes hundreds of Muslims praying five times a day in their building as the nearby mosque was so small that they were forced to worship outside.

The minister of St John's, Rev Isaac Poobalan, has handed over part of the church hall to Chief Imam Ahmed Megharbi and the imam has led prayers in the main chapel.
