Southwold Lent Lectures

Sunday 10 March 2019 at 6:00pm

Location: United Reformed Church, High Street, Southwold  IP18 6DS.

This year’s Lent Lectures will tackle the subject of death: what happens to me when I die? What does the Bible say about it? How does the church respond to it? How should we react to its inevitability in our own lives and how should we treat those who are facing death or bereavement? These are not easy questions, but they are ones which many worry about, even if they seldom say so.  
10 March | Dying to Meet You? Old Testament Perspectives | Dr Philip Johnston, University of Cambridge.

17 March | The God of the Living: Easter and Christian Hope | Canon Dr John Parr, Ministry Formation Advisor, Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich.
24 March | Heaven, Hell, or Somewhere In Between? Where Do I Go When I Die? | Professor Hugh Williamson, Emeritus Regius Professor of Hebrew, University of Oxford.
31 March | The Practicalities of Handling Death in the Modern Church | The Revd Simon Pitcher, Charles Croll, and Christine Kennell, Southwold.
