    Becoming Modern: Recreating Past, Present and Future

    7:00 pmProfessor Meic Pearse | The Round Church, Cambridge

    Modernization – leaving the village for the cities; industrialization; working outside the home rather than in it; individualism and the severing of community ties – has been the defining human experience of the past two and a half centuries. This has had profound consequences for our sense of identity, and has opened the door to the rise of modern ideologies: secular metanarratives that claim meta-explanatory powers. It has also transformed what the past means for ordinary people – with consequences for how we view the present and the future. This lecture will explore some of the more important challenges this presents for a coherent, Christian view of the world, and of ourselves.

    Forming a Christian Mind: Christ, the Academy and the (Post-) Modern World

    9:30am - 4.15pmOld Divinity School, St John's College, Cambridge

    Forming a Christian Mind (FACM) equips postgraduate students, post-docs and early career academics for their double calling: to study excellently from the basis of a biblical worldview (November conference), and to use what they study for cultural apologetics and mission (February conference). Christian Heritage is excited to be a sponsor of these conferences, which will help Christians in the academic world to recognise and pursue these two goals with the support of other Christians, in order to grow in confidence and fruitfulness within their disciplines. For more information, please visit the FACM website.

    Deciphering the Round Church

    7:00 pmDr Robert Evans | The Round Church, Cambridge

    The Round Church is one of Cambridge's oldest and best-known buildings. It predates the University by almost a century. It is one of only four round churches still standing in the UK. It has been much loved and discussed by poets, preachers, antiquarians, and journalists down the centuries. And yet so much about its past remains a mystery.

     

    Debunking some popular stories about wandering Knights Templar, this talk, in the beautiful setting of the Round Church itself, will uncover the far more fascinating truths that lay behind this amazing building. It will look at the foundation of the church in the early decades of the twelfth century and some of the ideas which led its founders to make it round. This is a great opportunity to enter the world of the early middle ages and also to find out more about life in Cambridge a century before the first students arrived.

    Making Sin Plausible to Atheists and Secularists

    7:00 pmAndrew Fellows | The Round Church, Cambridge

    In sharing the gospel, we sometimes forget that the message of sin against a holy God is totally implausible to many people today. As the reality of sin is integral to the meaning of the gospel of forgiveness, we are required to make sense of it. While exploring the barriers to accepting sin, this talk looks at how we can expose its reality.
