The Abingdon PCN group, continues to meet monthly at 7.30 pm on the first Tuesday of most months. Meetings are held in church rooms with an attendance of between 12 and 20. Our wide publicity of our meetings is beginning to prompt questions about just what being a progressive Christian might mean and this is something we intend to continue to explore as we grow in numbers We have completed the Living the Questions 2. study course and First Light: Jesus and the Kingdom of God DVD-based materials featuring Marcus Borg and John Dominic Crossan. We held a successful conference in Abingdon in October 2013 led by Adrian Alker and entitled, 'Let's Be Honest', which stimulated us to consider how we can be honest in our approach to Jesus, to the Church and to God as we develop our group and its activities locally. In 2017 we hosted a well attended visit from Australian theologian, Dr Val Webb. In 2018 we enjoyed a challenging visit from Dave Tomlinson talking about his book, 'Black Sheep and Prodigals: an antidote to black and white religion'. The next speaker in 2019, in what has become an annual event, was Keith Ward on the theme of his book, 'Love is His meaning'. Currently the group is concerned to examine positive insights for progressive Christianity and the role of PCN nationally and locally looking to the future.
