Bishop's Study Morning for Clergy

14 May 2019 | Time: 09:30
All licensed clergy are invited

At the first of this year's two annual study mornings for clergy, Bishop Andrew will be speaking on A Proper Confidence, based on his 2009 book ‘Confidence in the Living God: David and Goliath revisited’.

Confidence lies at the heart of society, determining the success or failure of the economy, the government, companies, schools, churches and individuals. As Christians, we are called to proclaim our faith in God, but how can we build and maintain this confidence in an increasingly secularised culture where such faith is often seen as marginal, embarrassing or even downright dangerous? Using the story of David and Goliath as his starting-point, Bishop Andrew shows how the Lord can indeed be our confidence, whatever the odds. He explores how God can develop a proper self-confidence within individuals and his Church, revealing the gospel through transforming words and transformed lives. He considers, too, how we can confidently tackle the challenges of day-to-day living, whether a difficult work situation or family relationship, or simply anxiety about the future.

Coffee will be served from 9am onwards, and the morning will include two opportunities to hear from Bishop Andrew, as well as cluster group discussion, questions and worship.

"Gunning for God" Christian Confidence and the New Atheists
Prof LennoxWe were delighted to welcome John Lennox, Professor of Mathematics at the University of Oxford to speak at our clergy study session at St Paul's Church Camberley on Monday 8th May, 2017.  In two fascinating talks Prof Lennox explained why Christians can be confident in the ​Gospel and why it may even be the case that theism, rather than atheism, sits more comfortably with both science and reason.
