Between Remembering and Forgetting: Exploring the Narratives of Age in our Faith Communities


  • St Bride's Church Percy Street Liverpool United Kingdom (map)

A Theology and Modernity Lecture at St Bride's Liverpool by James Woodward

We live in an ageing society embracing the reality that life expectancy increases year on year leading to an increased number of older people. This lecture will explore the narratives that surround age especially within our churches and challenge us to think about our own ageism as a barrier to compassionate inclusivity and social outreach. What might it mean to value age and see within our spiritual landscape the wisdom that comes from remembering the gift of years?

Canon Dr. James Woodward is Principal of Sarum College in Salisbury. He is a Practical and Pastoral theologian who has written widely in the area of human vulnerability, age and the end of life.

Free lecture, no booking necessary.
