Executive Director of the ACC&C Reverend Professor Stephen Pickard said, “The ACC&C and Bluestar Intercultural Centre co-host a ‘friendship and dialogue’ Iftar each year.
“The ACC&C has been collaborating with our Muslim colleagues at Bluestar Intercultural Centre for over a decade to foster understanding and friendship in our increasingly pluralistic society.
