A Church of England vicar has come under fire for allowing a Muslim prayer service to be held in his church.

Rev. Canon Giles Goddard joined in the “Inclusive Mosque” event at St John’s church, Waterloo, by reading part of Psalm 139 and giving thanks to “the God that we love, Allah.”

The service included a traditional Islamic call to prayer, and was attended by dozens of Muslims.

‘Perfect Sense’
Rev. Goddard defended the move, saying: “We are offering a place for people to pray so it made absolutely perfect sense.”

He claimed: “It is the same God, we share a tradition.”

But evangelical C of E ministers have warned that the service is an affront to Christians around the world who are suffering for their faith.
