St John’s Symposium

The next meeting of the St John’s Theology Symposium will be on Saturday 23rd April 2016, 10am-4pm, and will be at St Cuthbert’s Church, next to St John’s on Lothian Road. We can’t use our hall because of the development and so are very grateful to the Minister and Kirk Session of St Cuthbert’s for letting us use their hall.

The Symposium will be led by the Revd Professor David Fergusson DD FBA FRSE, Principal of New College and Professor of Divinity at Edinburgh University. He is a Minister of the Church of Scotland and Chaplain to Her Majesty the Queen and is well known for his contribution to theology. He has engaged with the new atheism (Dawkins et al.) in his Faith and Its Critics: A Conversation (Oxford, 2009) and published a number of books on Creation. His work has been translated into Persian, Korean and Chinese. He is also an excellent preacher and after-dinner speaker.

The format will be the same as previous Symposiums, with lectures, lunch, and discussion. All are welcome, the only qualification is a desire to think about these great themes in Christianity – there is no charge but donations can be given.

The St John’s Theology Symposium is run by St John’s but is a joint event with Edinburgh City Centre Churches Together (St John’s, St Cuthbert’s and St Andrews and St George’s West), the Edinburgh University School of Divinity (New College) and the Centre for Theology and Public Issues.

To register or for further information contact: Revd Dr Stephen Mark Holmes, St John’s Church, Princes Street, Edinburgh EH2 4BJ.
