Study Days and Lectures
All Saints’ provides a range of in person study days, lectures, quiet days and retreats throughout the year as a way of helping people to grow in their knowledge of the Christian faith, and to make time and space for reflection on the Gospel.
We frequently invite a range of interesting speakers to explore with us a particular area of their expertise or knowledge. We hope that by experiencing the ideas and perspectives of others we are enabled to grow in our own understanding of the horizons of God’s love for us and in our own relationship with him. Details can be found below of forthcoming events.
Lent Lecture – Friday 8th April 2022, 7.00 pm
The Infinite Vision: Augustine and the formation of the Western mind.
This year’s Lent Lecture will take place on Friday 8th April at 7.00 pm at All Saints. This will focus on the thought of St Augustine of Hippo, and will be given by the Revd Dr Dominic Keech, Vicar of St Nicholas’, Brighton.
The evening will be an introduction to the life and thought of the great fourth century North African theologian, exploring his influence on Western Christianity’s understanding of the human person in time and eternity, and probing his continuing presence in contemporary crises of self and society.
Autumn Study Day – Thursday 20th October, 10.00 am-3.00 pm
Seeing God: Theologies of the Transfiguration
This year’s autumn study day aims to build on the success of our focus last year on Ravenna. Join us for a series of three lectures given through the day by the Revd Dr Peter Anthony, Dr Gregory Tucker, and the Revd Dr Ayla Lepine, all focusing on the Transfiguration and ways in which we can interpret and live out its mystery in the world today.
Fr Peter Anthony will begin with an exposition of the biblical Transfiguration narratives. Dr Gregory Tucker will explore the Transfiguration in the light of Eastern orthodox liturgical traditions. Mthr Ayla Lepine will reveal to us some of the ways in which the Transfiguration has been depicted through the centuries.
It promises to be a very interesting day of study, reflection, and prayer.
