Winter Lecture 2022/23

Issues Facing Christians Today


This year’s lecture series aims to tackle some of the big issues of concern for Christians today, including sanctity of life, gender and sexuality, climate change. Each speaker will aim to provide an analysis of the current situation, give a clear biblical exploration of the issue, and then offer some suggestions as to how Christians ought to respond.
