Programme for Season Six - Spring & Summer 2019

1. What’s the Point of Going to Church?

Thursday 4 April

If I can do my shopping online, why do I still need to go to church each Sunday? 
And surely I can be a Christian without all this churchy stuff? 

Join us as we look afresh at the point of going to Mass. 20-minute talk, followed by a round-the-table discussion.

Eventbrite - Dominican Forum: "Living Hopefully in an Uncertain World"

2. Left, Right, or Centre? Christianity and Politics

Wednesday 15 May

Can a Christian be a Tory? Or a Socialist? 
Can we vote for a political party even when we don’t agree with everything they stand for? 
Does the Church more naturally side with the left or the right? 

Come and join the debate!

Eventbrite - Dominican Forum: "Love Island or Holy Island?"

3. Hard Science, Soft Religion?

Tuesday, 25 June

What does Christianity have to do with the real world? 

Today’s world is underpinned by technology based on science and hard data. 
Religion, by contrast, seems subjective and irrational. Does it still merit a place in our world, then?

About the Dominican Friars

* The Dominican Friars are a religious order in the Catholic church. They specialise in the intellectual apostolate, and their high level of training allows them to engage and debate with a wide range of viewpoints and at many levels. As the 'Order of Preachers' they have a strong tradition of engaging preaching and are much sought-after as speakers. Also known as the 'Blackfriars', the area of the same name in London is called after the great Dominican priory which once stood there.
