Preaching on Mark's Gospel through Lent
17 February 2021, 10am | via Zoom
Workshop leader: Revd Dr Ian Paul. Dr Paul is a writer, blogger, and theologian. He is also the Managing Editor at Grove Books and ordained in the Church of England, currently ministering in the Diocese of Southwell & Nottingham.
How can we draw on Mark's portrayal of Jesus' temptation and passion to capture the essence of the season of Lent, share the Good News, and encourage congregations to faithful discipleship? In this workshop, we'll explore what Mark's Gospel says about Jesus' 40 days in the wilderness at the start of his ministry - those days echoed in the 40 days of Lent - together with the story of his passion and how we can retell this story in the context of our lives today to point people towards the hope and joy of Easter.

Preaching in a Scientific Age
13 January 2021, 10.30-13.00 | via Zoom
Workshop leader: Revd Jennifer Brown, Director of Training for the College of Preachers and former Science Missioner in the Diocese of Oxford
Science & technology are central to our lives and there are many who believe that science and religious faith are incompatible - that we can believe one or the other but not both. This workshop will explore how we can use our preaching to dispel this myth, help people to discover the truth of scripture in an age of science and equip our congregations to bring Christian values to discussions about how science & technology are used in society.
