New Religious Movements in the UK

BOOK NOW to secure your place!

Read on even if you are not a member of the Alumni Association!

This year’s Annual Meeting of the Alumni Association will be held on Wednesday, 12 June 2019.  All are welcome!

Our keynote speaker for this year is Dr Anne Richards, the Church of England’s National Adviser for Mission Theology, New Religious Movements and Alternative Spiritualities.

Anne will present a session which will provide an introduction to the New Religious Movements operating in the UK today. She will talk about why people join them and what issues this raises for the Church. We will hear observations and advice about engaging New Religious Movements and those who are part of them, or are being drawn to them, and she will provide a robust look at those which do harm.

These keynote sessions (though not the AGM of members) will be open to all those who have an interest in the topic of the year, and so all are invited to consider joining us on the day for the opening session and lunch. 

During the lunch period, we also present works of art on biblical themes and Christian concerns as seen through the eyes of contemporary Christian artists. The Christian artist being featured this year is Chris Higham.

The charge to those who are not Alumni Association members for participating in the keynote session and lunch, is £20

So let me welcome you again to our Annual Event, and I encourage you to book you place with us as soon as possible. It will be an excellent time of fellowship and learning together for our Christian service.
