Forum on Church and Art


When: 30th November 2009, 7.00pm.
Where: tbc – in Oxford.
Price: tbc – probably £10 including dinner.

This event will consider how to enable artists to play their part in the life of the Church, by examining both the role of artists in the Church and the relational challenges that often arise with church leaders. The subject matter will be better nuanced by then – feel free to input if you’d like to. The hope is that the evening will serve as a stepping stone in helping the Church engage more creatively with the life of faith.

The evening will include round-table discussions over dinner, followed by a larger-scale interaction between a panel of artists and church leaders. The panel will include Krish Kandiah (Executive Director: Churches in Mission for the UK Evangelical Alliance, formerly taught at Wycliffe College / Oxford University and pastored Church in the Kitchen) who will be able to help our discussions bear real fruit.

As this is a catered event, we will need to know if you’re coming. At this stage, please just let Jez know if you’d be interested in coming.

    yes, Jez, count me in.

    What you are doing looks fabulous! Had you thought of inviting clergy from local churches?

      Thanks, Christine. Yep, we’ll try and have one or two local clergy involved. Of course, Monday nights are not great for many of them, but I’ll send invites all the same.

    Hi Jez,

    It sounds like a great idea for an event. Unfortunately I can’t get to it. Do you reckon you will be recording it?
