Word & World, (Public Theology), Corrymeela Ballycastle

05 - 08 Jul 2018
Corrymeela Centre, Ballycastle


Corrymeela is delighted to run a summer school in theology, all are welcome but we are particularly interested in recruiting young people aged 18–25.

When: Thursday 5th July (12:30pm) to Sunday 8th July (2pm).

This summer school will consider questions of public theology:

How do we read the biblical texts and hold conversations between them and the modern world?

How do we approach divisive topics about religion and conflict today? How do we use theological methodologies?

What is it that young people know about theology that needs to be learned by the wider community?

We are delighted to welcome a teaching team of people from across a vast array of theological disciplines (liberation, political and public theologies; biblical studies; political science; and the arts).


The full cost of this residential is £225.00 (for those aged over 25), but thanks to very  generous sponsorship by the Student Christian Movement Ireland, we are able to offer a subsidised rate of £75.00 to 18–25 year olds

(If your parish is interested in sponsoring a place at the full cost, we would be delighted to hear from you).
