Being the Church in Apocalyptic Times.
Summer Study Evenings 5th 12th & 19th June
Select Stadium Widnes
Join us for an exciting, informative series of presentations exploring how the church can live through apocalyptic times.
Three speakers will explore different aspects of this challenging theme
the practical response to Grenfell Tower with Revd Mike Long (in conversation with Canon Dr Rod Garner) - 5th June
how apocalyptic practices in scripture illuminate current practice with Professor Kenneth Newport - 12th June
how contemporary culture offers threats and possibilities for mission with Dr Andrew Crome - 19th June
This series strikes at the very heart of who Readers are in their calling and in their pastoral ministry, meeting need on the frontline of our parishes.
Revd. Mike Long, Minister of Notting Hill Methodist Church will speak about the Grenfell Tower fire, its impact on the local community and churches and the unfolding lessons it has for his congregation.
Professor Kenneth Newport of Liverpool Hope University will speak about the apocalyptic themes to be found in Scripture and how they can aid and illuminate our current practices.
Dr. Andrew Crome, Lecturer at Manchester Metropolitan University will speak about contemporary culture in relation to its threats and possibilities for our mission.
The evenings are open to ministerial and lay colleagues, so please think about bringing someone along with you.
