Free e-seminar series: The Advent of Evolutionary Christianity. This is a Michael Dowd initiative, Christianity from a perspective which sees no difficulty with evolution. Michael will be ‘working’ as the host and sounding board for the next two months, beginning 4th December 2010. The series will interview 30 leading speakers [many well known to PCN Britain members] considered to be at the leading edge of a new spirituality. Broadcasts can either be heard ‘live’ and on audio links after the event.
We are a community of faith dedicated to sharing our beliefs and experiences with anyone seeking answers to spiritual questions. Launched in 1999, explorefaith.org is a non-profit organization with a growing list of Partner Churches that support its mission and development. Explorefaith.org and its associates are deeply committed to ongoing spiritual formation for people of all ages and all backgrounds, living in countries around the world.
Free to Believe is an informal network of liberally minded members of the United Reformed Church. It holds a spring residential Conference, and autumn reading party at the URC’s Windermere Centre. This year’s conference “Jesus for the non-religious” was led by Jack Spong.
Greenbelt is a festival of arts, faith and justice. It launched in 1974 and has hosted its annual festival every year since. Greenbelt believes that things often kept apart can and should be held together. Things like artistry and activism, spirituality and politics, faith and justice. It is a festival where these things belong together and where all are welcome. Energised by a progressive Christian worldview, Greenbelt creates a festival that is inclusive, open-minded, participatory and generous in spirit.
PCN Britain has had a presence at Greenbelt since 2011. We intend to continue that link though not necessarily every year.
HOLY CITY is the a monthly, Glasgow city-centre workshop & worship event for curious folk and faithful doubters concerned with the contemporary challenges for progressive Christianity. It is organised by the Wild Goose Resource Group and a motley crew of Glaswegian citizens. This is in effect WGRG’s laboratory where they experiment and develop their uniqie participative approach through workshops & worship. It runs from October to May and takes place in Renfield St Stephen’s Centre, Bath Street, Glasgow.
We are a network of individuals and organisations whose make-up reflects the breadth and scope of the Church of England and beyond. We come from differing traditions and differing locations but we are united in one aim: to celebrate and maintain the traditional inclusivity and diversity of the Anglican communion. We are committed to ensuring that those who are excluded because of their poverty, different abilities, ethnic origin or any other reason can play their full part in the Gospel of Jesus Christ’s unconditional love.
It is the conviction of members of the Lesbian and Gay Christian Movement that human sexuality in all its richness is a gift of God, gladly to be accepted, enjoyed and honoured as a way of both expressing and growing in love, in accordance with the lilfe and teaching of Jesus Christ. Therefore it is their conviction that it is entirely compatible with the Christian faith not only to love another person of the same sex but also to express that love fully in a personal sexual relationship.
Living the Questions is a source of curriculum and media for both seekers and “church alumni/ae” convinced that Christianity still has relevance in the 21st Century. Providing a variety of flexible resources, Living the Questions can help people explore the future of Christianity and what a meaningful faith can look like in today’s world.
LivingSpirituality is a new group which brings together the contemplative and active dimensions of life, broadly rooted within the Christian tradition. We intend LivingSpirituality to be a resource through which people can find
material, groups and people to help deepen and anchor their explorations through all stages of journeying - at times of adversity and at times when we are in touch with the oneness of life. LivingSpirituality is here to keep people informed about a wide range of initiatives and events relevant to our vision, and to maintain connection between people on a similar journey.
