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.
