Theological Forum


The Theological Forum meets six times a year, and is open to all-of any faith or none- who have an interest in theological matters.

Our meetings take different formats. We may:

Read a book beforehand and examine the issues it raises
Read a paper prepared by a member of the Forum and then discuss it
Listen to an invited speaker, followed by a question and answer session
In the past we have discussed (amongst others) books such as:

“An Interrupted life and Letters from Westerbok” by Etty Hillsum
“Do Nothing to Change Your Life” by Stephen Cottrell
“The Word of God” By Keith Ward

We have discussed papers about:

The Nicene Creed
Female Images of God

We have also had talks such as:

The Image of God and the Theology behind the Sarum Rite
Franciscanism and Developing a Rule of Life
What is a Monstrance? A theological reflection on the Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament





We have also discussed films such as “Exodus: Gods and Kings”

So you can see that we try to have a varied programme so why not come along and see for yourself.  We meet at 7.30 p.m. in Abbey House, next to the Abbey

We try not to arrange meetings on one set day of the week but vary the days, meeting progressively on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. See the Bulletin or the website diary for information about meeting dates.
