In Search of Spirituality: The Dilemma of the Contemporary Church

Picture courtesy of James Whitesmith on FlickrFor many people, traditional expressions of Christianity have lost their appeal. This six-part course explores reasons for this and ways in which Christianity is being re-imagined for the 21st century.

It will cover topics such as where and why spirituality is finding a place in popular culture both in art and leisure; the spiritual needs of older people and children; as well as the emerging church and fresh expressions of church. No previous knowledge or experience is needed.
