previous events and blogs

The God Delusion:
fact or fiction

If God exists, why is it so difficult to explain? Does Richard Dawkins have a valid point that it’s all a delusion? Read the blog for more!         

WE DON'T NEED GOD
we have science

Does Science have all the answers? Are Science and Religion mutually exclusive?Can you be a Scientist and  believe in God?

wHY IS THERE SO MUCH EVIL?

Why is there so much suffering in the world? How can a ‘Just’ and ‘Wise’ God allow natural and man made disasters to happen?

WHY IS ATHEISM ON THE RISE?

Is having a Religion becoming unpopular? Why is Church failing? Why is the religious unaffiliation growing significantly.

organisers

 The project is a collaboration between ARISE, Islamic Unity Society and Dar Al Islam Foundation.

  • One in 20 children in the UK will experience child sexual abuse. 
Nine out of 10 children know or are related to their abuser. Eighty percent of child sex abuse happens either in the child's home or in the home of the abuser. 
Signs: Child may starts being aggressive, withdrawn, dislike or seem afraid of a particular person, may develop health problems e.g. STIs give clues about the abuse but may not directly talk about it thinking it’s their fault. 
Abused children are likely to self harm, become involved in criminal behaviour, misuse drugs or alcohol and commit suicide as young adults. 
It's best not to delay if you suspect a child is being sexually abused. Speak directly with your local Police or or your local children's social services. You can also get advice or report your concerns anonymously to the NSPCC online or by phoning their free helpline on 0808 800 5000.  #endchildsexualabuse
