About Us

We are a friendly group - eager to share ideas and learn from others.

We start each session with tea/coffee (or something stronger if you wish!) and a general chat about any activities or events that we have experienced or heard about that would be of interest to other members. We then review the topic(s) for the evening along with open and honest discussions about each in which everyone’s views are respected.
It is a great way to hear other people’s views and put your own in a friendly, non-judgemental environment.

Local PCN members and anyone who is interested in Progressive Christianity are all welcome to join us.  Even if you are not sure that you want to attend regularly, please feel free to come along for a “taster” session.

Group History

The South London Group has been meeting since November 2013.

We have discussed several topics, many based on books such as Marcus Borg’s “The Heart of Christianity” and “Speaking Christian”, John Shelby Spong’s “The Fourth Gospel” and have recently covered “The Meaning of Jesus” jointly written by Marcus Borg and Tom Wright and “The first Paul” by Marcus Borg and Dominic Crossan..

We have just finished the book “Love is his meaning” by Keith Ward and will be starting on Trevor Dennis’s “The Gospel beyond the Gospels” in 2019
