Wednesday 19 July 2017, 7:30-9:30pm   |   Gloucester Cathedral, College Green, Gloucester, GL1 2LX
Admission free, voluntary offering for Home for Good and GARAS taken at event

Have we made God too safe? Too familiar? How could a radical commitment to justice and hospitality make the difference in our homes, churches and communities? Krish Kandiah joins us for an evening looking at the surprising strangeness of God, and the power of hospitality. Krish is the author of the book God is Stranger, published by Hodder & Stoughton, where he takes us through the biblical stories of God turning up in surprising ways and through surprising people, and in turn explores the implications for Christians today. 

The evening brief responses from local organisation Gloucestershire Action for Refugees and Asylum Seekers, and from our lecturer in Bible and Mission, Dr Tim Davy.

Scars Across Humanity

with Elaine Storkey

Wednesday 26 July 2017, 7:30-9:30pm   |   Gloucester Cathedral, College Green, Gloucester, GL1 2LX
Admission free, voluntary offering for Restored and the Nelson Trust taken at event

In recent years, awareness has grown about modern-day slavery, institutional discrimination and ideological hate crimes; and Christians have come forward to begin to respond to these injustices. Despite this, gender-based violence remains unaddressed in many places. Yet it is an unspoken daily reality for thousands of people, across many cultures.

Join us as we spend an evening with Elaine Storkey, exploring what gender-based violence is, what it means, where it comes from, and why it’s important that Christians pay attention. This evening will challenge you, move you and inspire you. Copies of Elaine's book, Scars Across Humanity, published by SPCK, will be available for purchase at the event.
