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.
