Did you know Hymns A&M also run an events programme?
For the past decade we have run the Church Times Festival of Faith and Literature, a literary festival with a theological slant. This was so well received that we thought we could do a few more!
In the past few years, we have programmed, managed and run ….
The Festival of Preaching – this major bi-annual conference features a sparkling range of speakers with lectures, workshops and worship … the Church Times Green Health Live event – a one day conference exploring the links between health, gardening and the environment, particularly within parish contexts – and Theology Slam, a search for new engaging voices thinking theologically about the contemporary world.
Like everyone else, we have moved our events programme online in 2020 and for the foreseeable future. See the links below for the latest events news and follow us via email and social media for updates.
