Black Sheep and Prodigals Tour 2017

Black Sheep and Prodigals Tour 2017

Nine venues are now arranged between March 14th and 22nd when Dave Tomlinson will talk about his new book.

Black Sheep and Prodigals is aimed primarily at people who are on the edges or outside of mainstream religion - those who reject, question, or have little interest in the tenets of traditional faith.

The book sets out to present a more contemporary and more humane approach to faith, drawing on honest doubt, common sense and spiritual experience. Dave Tomlinson is an Anglican priest and founded the legendary Holy Joe’s, a church in a pub in Clapham for disaffected church drop-outs. He is now Vicar of St Luke’s, Holloway, a thriving parish church in north London and a regular contributor to Pause for Thought on BBC Radio 2.

The tour venues are as follows, along with contact emails for the organisers. Further details are available in the Events section and will be added to as they become available.

Why nothing in the midlands?

Dear Mr Geddes
Thank you for your comment regarding that lack of venues in the midlands hosting an evening with Dave Tomlinson.
A decision was made by the trustees of PCN that all the organisation for this tour would be handled locally and not centrally through the PCN office. Non of the PCN groups in the region offered to host an event.
Would you be interested in hosting an evening?
Best regards

Hello there,
I’ve tried to contact Paul regarding 2 places for the Harrogate event but I’ve had no reply. Should I contact the Church directly or wait for a reply?
Thank you,
Kind Regards,
