A wine reception and lecture with Dr Naomi Paxton

Politics impacts all aspects of our lives, no matter how involved we make ourselves in the democratic process. In the 1900s as women sought the right to vote on the same terms as men the suffragist movement was involved not just in the obvious political arenas but was also deeply embedded in other aspects of the national life. One such area was in performing arts, seeking to change hearts and minds and further the cause through drama and especially plays.

A Visit to The Palestine Exploration Fund Followed by Dinner at The Sail Loft

The Palestine Exploration Fund (PEF) was founded under the royal patronage of Queen Victoria in 1865 by a group of distinguished academics and clergymen, most notably the Dean of Westminster Abbey, Arthur Stanley, and Sir George Grove. The original mission statement of the PEF was to promote research into the archaeology and history, manners and customs and culture, topography, geology and natural sciences of biblical Palestine and the Levant. This all provides a rich background from which the three Abrahamic faiths emerged.

The Chief Executive & Curator, Felicity Cobbing, will introduce us to the PEF, and make available some of the most interesting highlights of its vast collection. She has excavated in Jordan with the British Museum, and worked throughout the Middle East, particularly Syria, Jordan, and Lebanon. Widely published on the archaeology and the history of archaeology in the Levant, she is co-author with Dr Raouf Sa’d Abujaber of Beyond the River – Ottoman Transjordan in Original Photographs, and with David M. Jacobson on Distant Views of the Holy Land.

A Sion College Seminar Supper with The Right Rev’d Humphrey Southern

Many of us will be aware of the significant changes to the way senior appointments are made in the Church of England in recent years. Beginning with Gordon Brown’s surrendering of the Prime Minister’s involvement in 2007 and considering the influence of Lord Green’s report on ‘talent’ development in 2014, this Sion College Seminar Supper will explore the impact of these systems on culture and leadership in the Church today.

We are delighted that Bishop Humphrey Southern will be our speaker. He is currently Principal of Ripon College Cuddesdon and draws on a wealth of experience in parochial and episcopal ministry, and theological education, all of which make him particularly well-placed to reflect on this subject. Our venue for the evening is a private room at Brasserie Blanc Southbank.

Online application and payment is available for this event. To apply and pay online you will first need to register if you haven't done so already. Once the Administrator has approved your registration, you will be able to log in and access the online application/payment.
