Reimagining Church Buildings: Panel Discussion

By Nigel Walter 05 Oct 2020

Church buildings reflect the theology of those who built them. What seems central - is it the altar for sacraments, the pulpit for preaching or the stage for the worship band? Yet our church buildings have a much deeper story to tell and a significant role to play in the communities around them. In this event we reflect theologically on church buildings and explore the opportunities as well as challenges which they bring.

This online panel discussion features architect and Cambridge Paper author, Nigel Walter, Dr Dee Dyas (Director, Centre for the Study of Christianity and Culture at the University of York), Bishop John Inge (author of A Christian Theology of Place) and Dr Anne Dawtry (Archdeacon of Halifax).
