2016 Sarum Lectures – Being Human: The Renewal of Pastoral Theology
- Course Dates: Wed 27 April 2016, 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm
The Church of England is seeking to re-imagine Christian ministry for the 21st Century.
A hundred years ago during the First World War, Dick Sheppard was the Vicar of St Martin-in-the-Fields and “the most influential parish priest the Church of England has ever known”. He could be said to have re-imagined Christian ministry for a substantial part of the Church in the 20th Century.
His concern was for the love of Christ and his care was of people, not statistics. His approach to ministry and mission gives insight into the task facing the contemporary Church.
This lecture is part of a series of four held in partnership with Salisbury Cathedral, given by the Bishop of Salisbury, Nicholas Holtam. ‘Being Human: The Renewal of Pastoral Theology’ will be held in the North Transept of Salisbury Cathedral.
