CANCELLED: Lament for Lent

Event Date: Apr 01, 2020

weekly @ weeWONDERBOX 6.45-8.15pm. God isn’t afraid of our grief, doesn’t cower when we complain and does not take our lament lightly. Through biblical exploration, discussion and creative expression, we’ll have the opportunity, rather than saying “Fine thanks”, to let the unsaid out. This six-week series is based on the Church Mission Society’s 2020 Lent […]

POSTPONED: Horror and Humour in the Bible

Event Date: Apr 17, 2020

17th-19th April, Minsteracres Retreat Centre, Co. Durham.

Event Date: Apr 20, 2020

St Bride’s Church, Liverpool, 6pm. Public Theology Lecture with John L. Bell.
