WE ARE SORRY TO ANNOUNCE THAT UNFORTUNATELY THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED
at Newman University
National Institute for Christian Education Research
Newman Research Centre for the Bible and its Reception
Thursday 27th June 2019 9.30 a.m. to 4.00p.m.
In recent times there has been a retrieval within faith communities of a sense of scripture as a source of the inner life of faith, and its importance on examination syllabi has been strongly emphasised in recent curriculum reforms. How can RE classrooms, with their diverse and plural pupil populations, be spaces for fruitful dialogue with scripture and for serious reflection on its relevance for contemporary political discourse?
The seminar will be led by members of the Newman Centre for the Bible and its Reception and Dr Bob Bowie, Director of National Institute for Christian Education Research at Canterbury Christ Church, University, who has published widely on the effective use of scripture within RE.
Lunch and refreshments included.
Free of charge for Newman staff and students
