Lecture series

These weekly Zoom discussions will each focus on a theological lecture, available online, which all participants will be expected to have watched or listened to beforehand. Each discussion will be introduced with a brief recapitulation of the argument of the week’s lecture (usually by the Minister!) and some suggestions for points of discussion. After that the floor will be open. We can work out as we go along what seems to be an optimum length for each discussion. By way of light relief, each week’s video link will be accompanied by one suggested gospel song for listening to during the week, and each ‘live’ (i.e. real-time) discussion will also begin by listening together to another song from the playlist.

The Zoom link for the discussion is https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87179878823. In due course a booklet will be produced, but for the time being weekly links will be sent out for the lectures and songs.
