Church buildings reflect the theology of those who built them. What seems central - is it the altar for sacraments, the pulpit for preaching or the stage for the worship band?
Yet our church buildings have a much deeper story to tell and a significant role to play in the communities around them. In this event we will reflect theologically on church buildings and explore the opportunities as well as challenges which they bring. Whether you are responsible for maintaining a historical parish church, considering major alterations or planning a new building, then join us for a thought-provoking discussion.
We'll be joined by architect and Cambridge Paper author, Nigel Walter, Dr Dee Dyas (Director, Centre for the Study of Christianity and Culture), Bishop John Inge (author of A Christian Theology of Place) and Anne Dawtry (Archdeacon of Halifax).
