Questions of our Times webinars

During February and March we’ve been hosting a series of Tuesday evening webinar conversations which open up the challenges of Covid-19, fake news, race inequality, climate emergency and unanswered prayer. One webinar remains in the series, with former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, who will be thinking through the question of unanswered prayer.

The series host is Nigel Bovey, who is the vice-chair of the Christian Evidence Society and former editor of Salvation Army magazine The War Cry. He was interviewed last week about the webinars – find his interview here.

‘The Christian Evidence Society is an inter-denominational Christian trust that promotes the evidence for the credibility of Christianity,’ says the society’s chair, the Revd Canon Edward Carter. ‘With the coronavirus having such a huge effect, I hope this timely series of topical conversations will help people consider some of the fundamental questions of our times.’

The webinars mark the 150th anniversary of the society, which was founded in 1870 with a public lecture series, responding to the challenges of the times. This 2021 series has been made possible with the support of the Montgomery Trust.
