The 2015 programme of lectures explore the Christian faith.  The speakers bring a wide range of interests and expertise and the variety reflects some of the many ways to consider the Christian faith and "do theology". 

All lectures are held in St Cedd's Hall in the Chapter House, Chelmsford, CM1 1NX, EXCEPT on 15 July when the lecture will be held at St Peter's Harold Wood, RM3 0QA.  Admission to the lectures is £3.50, but on 15 July there will be no charge.  All lectures begin at 8.00 pm

A video of each lecture will be available on Youtube after the event.  Please click on the lecture title when it turns blue.
