Talking Theology

NEW: Monthly Talking Theology Discussion Group 

Join us for Taking Theology, a monthly discussion group where you can explore Christian beliefs and doctrines in depth

Each session includes an introductory talk, followed by a Q&A session where you can ask your questions and share your insights. Whether you are new to Christianity or a seasoned believer, you will find something to enrich your faith and deepen your understanding of current issues in Christian thinking. 

And of course, you can enjoy a glass of wine (or beer or soft drink) while you chat with other participants. 

The first session is on Thursday 7th March in the Winchester Room from 19:30 to 21:00 with the session led by the Revd Mark Bezrerra-Speeks on the topic:"Was Jesus a Huma Person?" See you there!
