The Theology Group has been resurrected in 2021!
The Theology Discovery Group meets at 5:15pm for a 5:30pm start on the second Wednesday of each month (except January) in Aldersgate.
We discuss a wide range of topics, big and little, covering God, humanity and the universe – depending on what we are interested it or what challenges us. We use a variety of approaches, and each session is led by a member of the Group. Most of all we are not afraid of questions where we don’t know the answers.
In our new format we will be starting with an issue about how we live and work in the 21st century in Aotearoa New Zealand, and trying to understand what our faith brings to that issue. This is not theoretical or abstract; we want something that is very real.
In 2016, we sponsored, with Knox Presbyterian Church, a visit from leading Australia progressive theologian and author, Lorraine Parkinson – who led a weekend of talks, discussions and workshops on the theme of What has Christianity done to Jesus?
Whatever the topic or approach, the Group provides a friendly, caring and safe space to think the unthinkable, to be real, and to voice our doubts as much as our certainties. New members are always welcome (whatever your religious heritage). Please bring some food to share (preferably finger food); tea, coffee and water provided. By prior arrangement, we can also usually organise for you to join us remotely via Zoom.
