Students came together on Tuesday 26 June and staff and colleagues on Wednesday 27 June 2018 to say farewell to Professor David Catchpole who is retiring from TQQ after 20 years.
Over the years, hundreds of people have gathered in the Cavell Room on Tuesday evenings for the Theology Quest and Questions course (TQQ) to explore the gospels and Christian doctrine, some travelling a great distance to do so. One former TQQ student was so devoted she flew from Guernsey for an overnight stay each week during term time throughout the two-year course.
‘This whole community salutes David as he steps down from TQQ’, said The Revd Canon Professor James Woodward, Principal of Sarum College. ‘We offer him our deep gratitude for all that he has done to contribute to nourishing our learning at Sarum College.
‘David’s diligence, intellectual integrity and skill as a teacher have enriched us all. Many are indebted to his commitment to rigour and the search for truth in the study of Scripture.
We are glad that he will keep in touch with Sarum and look forward to seeing him in College in the future.’
TQQ and Biblical Study Breaks will continue to occupy a significant place in Sarum’s educational programme, which is committed to offering a diverse range of academic and experiential courses on matters of faith in an environment of open exploration.
