Royal and Peculiar: A Seminar Supper with David Hoyle

Some of us may have visited Westminster Abbey at some point; and over the last couple of years many of us will have become more familiar with it as we have watched both the funeral of the Late Queen Elizabeth the Second and the Coronation of His Majesty the King. We will have marvelled at the splendour of the building and been moved by the dignity of the worship and the glory of its musical tradition. We will, perhaps, also have wondered about its daily ministry, its particular purpose and its relationship with the Sovereign and place in the life of the nation.

Sex, Establishment and the Church of England: A Seminar Supper with Mark Chapman

Few issues in the life of the church have drawn such sharp lines between the established church and the wider secular culture.

Following the process of Living in Love and Faith and the prayers of blessing being taken to Synod in 2023, this event examines the future of the established status of a church that seems so at odds with the secular culture it serves. With campaign groups for either ’side’ of the debate and the involvement of sitting MPs making motions in parliament, Professor Chapman examines the interplay of faith and politics in this unique situation.

Has the BBC Kept the Faith? A Sion College Seminar Supper with Torin Douglas

An Evening Reception for the Environment: Lambeth Palace Library with Dr Ruth Valerio, Bishop Nick Holtam, and David Shreeve MBE

In the words of the Church of England’s Environment Programme, “We believe that responding to the climate crisis is an essential part of our responsibility to safeguard God's creation and achieve a just world. Climate change hits hardest the poorest countries and poorest people of the world”. But how can clergy respond to this practically in parishes and other contexts of ministry, where we often have ageing buildings to maintain, and serve people who face many challenges in life?

Magnify the Lord: The Gift of Choral Evenson: Evensong at St Bartholomew-the-Great followed by an address on the History of Evensong

“My soul doth magnify the Lord and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.” Most of us will have sung or listened to these words set to music at Choral Evensong at some point in our walk of faith. Evensong is a distinctly Church of England and Anglican service, laid out in the Book of Common Prayer and is foundational for many in their worship of God. It is sung in churches and cathedrals around the world, in settings which are grand and professional as well as those that are smaller and gentle. Some see it as intimidating and perhaps a vestige of the past, and for others it has offered a glimpse into the heart of God. Choral Evensong remains the BBC’s longest running outside broadcast programme.
