Following the success of our first Festival of Theology in January, I will be hosting a second Festival of Theology on Wednesday 17th October 2018, once again at Christ Church, Chilwell. Come and listen to great speakers address some vital questions for Christian living, mission and discipleship in TED-style talks, with the opportunity to ask questions and interact.
The formal programme will start at 10.30 amand end at 3.30 pm, but there will be coffee from 10 am, and you will be very welcome to stay on for further conversation and engagement. The format will be fast moving, with presentations of 15 minutes and time for questions at the end of each one. There will be tea and coffee on arrival and at the close, and a light buffet lunch included. Tickets can be booked through this page on Eventzilla; the ticket price of £18 is designed to cover costs but nothing more; anyone in licensed ministry can claim the cost back as part of their CME allowance. Parking is in the nearby streets.
