As we move to the next phase of our Synod Journey we are hosting a series of talks that will help us to better understand some of the pressing concerns of the Church and society as we continue to discern the Church that God is calling us to be.
Location: The talks are held at LACE (Croxteth Drive, Liverpool L17 1AA). Please Note the Change of Venue Timings: Tea and Coffee from 7pm. Talk begins at 7:30pm. Concludes at 8:45pm. Optional Night prayer follows at 9pm. Do I need to attend all 7 talks? Talks are stand-alone - you can attend one, more, or all of them as you are able - and they assume no specialist knowledge. Other information: All talks include a time for questions.
