Transforming the communities of Essex & East London through Christ’s presence

Luther's Heritage

Sarah Perry will give the Keene Lecture on 22nd November 2017

Significant 500th anniversaries don’t come round very often, and the moment when Martin Luther nailed his theses to the door on 31st October 1517 has affected the Church in the West ever since.

I’m delighted that our three Keene Lecturers this year will be reflecting on that moment and helping us think about what it might mean for us today.

Duncan Morrow (8th November), Judith Champ (15th November) and Sarah Perry (22nd November) all bring tremendous expertise in their different fields, as well as having excellent reputations as engaging speakers.

This year the series starts with a Film Night on the actual anniversary day, to whet our appetites.

I look forward very much to welcoming you to Chelmsford Cathedral at 8.00pm on Tuesday 31st October and Wednesdays 8th, 15th and 22nd November.

Entry is free and everybody is welcome. There is a retiring collection for those who would like to sustain the Keene Fund for the future.
