TRUTH WITH A MISSION
Trinity’s Summer Conference
15-17 June 2010
The challenges of relating the Gospel to aspects of today’s western culture: how can we speak about truth with integrity? How should we respond to the ‘new atheism’? What should be the church’s mission in a ‘post-Christendom’ world? What will incarnational mission involve?
We invite you to join us this summer:
hear some stimulating talks from well-known teachers and writers
discuss the vital topic of Christian mission in today’s complex world
come to a public lecture by Prof. John Drane on ‘Down to Earth Mission’
attend the AGM of the Trinity Association and meet other former students and staff
find out about Trinity today from current students
enjoy Trinity’s 13-acre campus in a quiet part of Bristol, near the Downs
Our speakers are eminently qualified to address these issues from their many years of writing and engagement with the relationship between gospel and culture:
Revd Professor Alister McGrath 15 June
Professor of Theology, Ministry and Education, and Head of the Centre for Theology, Religion and Culture at King’s College, London; author of many books on apologetics, theology, science and faith.
