The Peckard Lecture 2021 by the Revd Dr Sam Wells

Sam Wells, who is widely known as a preacher, pastor, writer, broadcaster and theologian will speak under the title 'Act Justly: Church, Kingdom and Civil Society'.

The unevenness of the suffering caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the climate change emergency and the Black Lives Matter movement will be among the topics he explores.

This is the inaugural Peckard Lecture, starting what we hope will be an annual series of talks taking up the theme of the Church in contemporary society. It was a subject close to the heart of Peter Peckard, the 18th century Dean of Peterborough and influencial anti-slavery campaigner.

Sam Wells is the Vicar of St Martin-in-the-Fields, London. He will discuss what the church’s aspirations might be for society, and how it might seek to bring those about, in corporate mission and individual discipleship.

 

Places can be booked here, a Zoom link to the talk on date you choose will be sent to ticket holders just before the event.

A 10 day Pilgrimage to Israel and Palestine

Following in the Footsteps of Jesus led by The Rt Revd Donald Allister

I hope you can join me for my next Holy Land pilgrimage. I confidently expect that it will be:

  • exhilarating
  • exhausting
  • faith-building


For those who have been with me before, this pilgrimage will be different:

  • a full day longer with more activities
  • two bases instead of three
  • starting with Jerusalem and the south, finishing with Galilee and the north


For those who have not been on such a pilgrimage, please note:

  • this is a Christian pilgrimage, and we will worship together, singing, praying, reading the Bible, and celebrating Holy Communion every day
  • you need to be physically fit, able to negotiate moderate hill walking, uneven surfaces, and many steps
  • we will be well fed with lovely Mediterranean / Middle Eastern food, but we cannot always guarantee to provide special diets.

We will of course abide fully by any public health restrictions that are in place as we travel. Do be assured that Lightline will give full refunds if the pilgrimage has to be cancelled for any reason.

We are limited to 50 pilgrims, so get your booking in quickly

+Donald
Bishop of Peterborough
