Description

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)
  • how apocalyptic practices in scripture illuminate current practice with Professor Kenneth Newport
  • how contemporary culture offers threats and possibilities for mission with Dr Andrew Crome

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.

Our Speakers

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.


Each evening will conclude with Night Prayer - Compline.
