Anglican Adjectives: a four-week Lent course – all welcome

This year’s Lent programme from St George’s Cathedral Institute of Anglican Studies examines the Anglican tradition through a series of four adjectives: “liturgical”, “inclusive”, “reasonable” and “pastoral”.

“Liturgical”: The ideal of Common Prayer encapsulates the best of language and of the arts accompanying sound theology.
“Inclusive”: The Anglican Church is catholic and reformed. We test our faith against the Canon of Scripture.
“Reasonable”: Human wisdom and enquiry are utilised in a continuing attempt to define, interpret and formulate our beliefs. The Anglican Church encourages questions.
“Pastoral”: The Church proclaims the Good News (Gospel) that God cares. This is done through preaching and translating words into action in caring for the community.
Held on four Wednesdays and repeated on four Mondays through March, the programme is designed for anyone with a keen interest in Anglicanism.

All are welcome. While encouraged to attend all four sessions in the course, participants are also welcome to attend single sessions.

Dates / Times: Wednesdays 5.15pm–6.15pm, 3, 10, 17, 24 March; repeated Mondays, 4.15–5.15pm from 8 March
Venue: The Friends’ Room, Lower Burt Memorial Hall, 38A St Georges Terrace, Perth
Entry: $10.00 per session ($7.50 concession) – payment taken at the door
