Our next public event will be held on Saturday morning, the 7th of May, and our guest speaker will be Rev Dr Andrew Sloane.
Andrew will be speaking on the way Genesis chapters 2–3 have been understood by a variety of scholars, some of whom see the Genesis passage as egalitarian, others as oppressive, and others as irredeemable. Andrew will challenge these ideas as an egalitarian evangelical.

Date: Saturday the 7th of May 2016
New Venue: Stanmore House, Conference and Training Centre
