2021 February

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.

Ticket prices: general, £7; ministry student, £5

2021 January

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.

Ticket prices: General, £7; Ministry Student, £5

2020 November

Preaching Mark's Gospel

25 November 2020, 11.00-15.00 | via Zoom

Workshop leader: Revd Dr Neil Richardson, Methodist minister and former President of the British Methodist Conference.

Mark is the shortest of the gospels and, arguably, conveys its message with a palpable sense of urgency. This workshop will examine how Mark presents the Good News of Jesus and how we as preachers can interpret that message, and its challenges, for our congregations today.
