Wondering and Wandering

Join students and recent graduates from around the country for SCM annual gathering at Hebron Hall, Dinas Powys near Cardiff!
We’ll be spending the weekend exploring the themes of pilgrimage and prayer and looking at how we can listen to God and speak out in faith.

We’re super pleased to announce that Amanda Mukwashi, the CEO of Christian Aid, will be our headline speaker on the Saturday! She will be exploring what the themes of prayer and pilgrimage have meant to her in light of her experiences. Read more about her and our other speakers.

Workshops will fall into two streams, “I will speak” and “I will listen”. We’re really glad to have Jessica Dalton from Christian Soliarity Worldwide joining us to explore how to lobby for one of the workshops!

More details to follow, including Bible Study leader, more workshop details and how you can get involved through the AGM which will be happening on the Sunday Morning.

Cost of the ticket includes food and a bed in a shared room. There are travel bursaries of up to £50 available - please do make use of these!

Life Death and Everything - Free to Believe

This year’s reading party is at Bishop Woodford House in the delightful old Cathedral town of Ely, 15 miles from Cambridge and close to the Fens.  As always, the programme gives time to enjoy as well as to relax.

The conference will be led by Anne Lewitt, URC minister at Petworth, Pulborough and Billingsworth, and Free to Believe chair, Martin Camroux.  |
The reading party offers a chance to think about the meaning of our lives from two different perspectives, both open-minded and critical and reflective, but one mostly no longer believing in God the other still believing.

Location:
Bishop Woodford House, Ely
Speaker:
Anne Lewitt, URC minister at Petworth, Pulborough and Billingsworth, and Free to Believe chair, Martin Camroux.
