A Darlington church is coming under fire after offering to cover up crosses and allow Muslims to say prayers in its building.
St Matthew and St Luke’s had initially invited members of the Muslim community for an event next month to mark Ramadan.
It also offered different rooms to allow segregated worship for men and women.
Upon hearing about the event the Diocese of Durham intervened and told the church it must not hold Islamic prayers in the church building.
Under the heading, “No words!!!”
