Retreat, holiday and conference programme

I believe in poetry, art, and rock ‘n’ roll – did God write any good tunes lately?

Dave Tomlinson

God writes new ‘tunes’ all the time, but you won’t necessarily hear them in church. This is a fun and challenging retreat looking for November God in unexpected places. Delving into art and popular culture – watching some videos, listening to some music, reading some poems – and pondering Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s notion of ‘religionless Christianity’, we will ask what divine revelation means in a world where churches are in decline but spiritual hunger is everywhere. And what might this mean for the future of the church and for faith in the 21st century? Dave is a writer, speaker, and a vicar in London.
