Lent Lectures
Never the same again
The year 1918 is remembered for the end of the First World War. However, other significant events happened that year, around it or because of it. Therefore each of the canons is looking at their area of ministry, missionary, social justice, worship and theology, and seeing what a difference that period made to their area of ministry.

Mon 26th Feb       Canon Richard: ‘Who are the heathen now?’ [Aided by Dr Harvey C. Kwiyani, lecturer in African Theology at Hope University and Executive Director of Missio Africanus]
Mon 5th Mar         Canon Ellen: ‘Suffrage & Social Justice’
Mon 12th Mar       Canon Myles: ‘Patterns of Worship’
Mon 19th Mar       Canon Paul: ‘How WWI changed theological thinking’
