It will be offered twice so people can choose which to come to (the second session is on Monday 7th December from 7:00pm – 8:30pm. It is open to anyone – clergy and laity – in, or loosely connected to, churches in the Kensington Area, and will not assume prior theological knowledge, though hopefully will be a theologically rich discussion!

Dr Tomlin writes: Freedom is one of the big ideas of our culture. We long for it, fight wars over it and guard our freedoms jealously. Some have even seen the imposition of restrictions during the pandemic as an infringement of civil liberties. Christian faith also speaks of freedom, yet in ways that can seem strange, with ideas such as obedience to the will of God, and the value of service. What, then, is a Christian understanding of freedom and how does it differ from secular ideas? During this evening, with opportunity for questions and interaction, Bishop Graham will explore how a Christian understanding of freedom can be truly liberating.
