Science is a key part of today’s culture that we need to connect with in our preaching. How can we make the most of the opportunities to tell scientific stories as part of our sermons, and what pitfalls should we try to avoid?
This workshop is for preachers with a scientific background, and who want to develop or hone their skills in this area.
Over two sessions workshop participants will have a time of discussion with our public seminar speaker, an opportunity to deliver a 5 minute sermon and receive feedback in an informal small group setting, and a chance to learn from our experienced tutors and each other.
1-3pm, Wednesday 9th June 2021 – keynote lecture with Revd Prof David Wilkinson, Durham University (webinar on zoom)
1-5pm, Wednesday 16th June 2021 – discussion and tutorial groups (zoom)
Tutors: Dr Ruth Bancewicz, Prof Keith Fox, Revd Dr Rodney Holder and Dr Hilary Marlow
Places will be limited to 12, and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
