A new one-act play by Nigel Forde, followed by conversation with leading scientists A respected scientist and a christian, Job’s work is wrestling with the unpredictable as wellas predictable structure of the universe. Is God really in control? When Job’s personal world is shaken to the core, how can he re-assemble the pieces of the puzzle, both professionally and spiritually? Compared with the centuries long hand-in-hand relationship between religious faith and scientific enquiry, recent debate has, for many people, become mistrustful and sharply adversarial. Which side is God on? Or is this the wrong question to ask? One of any number of good and provocative questions thrown out by Faith in the Questions, a combination of theatre and scientific discussion.
Tickets for all Faith In The Questions events are free. You can book tickets through the Riding Lights Box Office call 01904 613000 or Online
This honour is a recognition of Si’s work as Rector and Area Dean, as well as leader of the Heart of the Community Project.
Si was installed alongside 5 others from across the Diocese, and all were well supported within the congregation.
Si said “A huge ‘thank you’ to everyone at St Michael’s who came to the Cathedral on Sunday. I felt very loved and supported by you all. It was a privilege to be installed as a Canon at Bristol Cathedral and an on-going joy to lead St Michael’s.”
Forget everything you thought you knew about poetry. Banish the word ‘recital” from your mind. Instead, think stand-up comedy, improvised lyrics, inspiring storytelling, rap, rhythm, song, and laughter. Lots of laughter.
We’re hosting a world class stand-up poetry event in the St Michael’s Centre on Friday 26 May.
Harry Baker is an international poetry slam champion. Chris Read is his musical partner in crime. Their energetic blend of lyrics and laughs is hopeful, challenging and charming.
