Event description
The Revd Dr Colin Heber Percy and The Bishop of Ramsbury, Andrew Rumsey talk about about faith, nature, and community

About this event

Join the Revd Dr Colin Heber Percy and The Bishop of Ramsbury, Andrew Rumsey, as they talk about about faith, nature, and community from their experiences of life in their Wiltshire parishes.

Tales of a Country Parish:

In this thought-provoking and invigorating book, Heber-Percy draws upon a kaleidoscopic knowledge of nature, philosophy, poetry and music, as well as religious writings, and interlaces them with amusing and touching vignettes from his Wiltshire parish. As he follows the changing seasons, Heber-Percy moves from the seemingly small and mundane to ponder big life questions - can you find heaven in a Londis shop, why is the Bible not like the Highway Code, what on earth we are all doing here - while gently offering up wisdom and sustenance for all, regardless of faith and creed.

English Grounds:

In this journal of short, lyrical reflections, Andrew Rumsey takes the reader on an exploration of faith, place and identity. Focusing on the author's home in Wiltshire, as he arrives to take up an ancient role in a testing time, English Grounds is both an affirmation and critique of this country's Christian heritage. Together the essays challenge us to think more deeply about the place of the Church in the consciousness of the English, and the place of England in the consciousness of the Church.

After the talk there will be a Q&A open to the audience and a book signing. Your ticket includes a glass of wine or soft drink.
