They could hold meetings shared with other Christians,and have other days where they invite members of other faiths to join in.
St Maries Catholic Cathedral could do the same,in fact they could take it in turns. I'm sure some young people would be interested if it was properly organized.
As you mention though highlighting doctrinal differences could cause problems but if it was led by someone with diplomacy and understanding,i can't see it being a problem.
They could organise weekend retreats and that sort of thing,but it need not to be to intense they need to switch off, and take part in social activities.
I did attend a talk on Buddhism put on by the Catholic Cathedral. It was part of a series of talks about other religions (alas I would have liked to attend them all but didn't find out about them until the Buddhist one).
The speaker was a Christian and it was one of the best explanations of Buddhism I have heard by a non Buddhist. High quality events of this nature are unfortunately rare and I would love to see/take part in many more.
