Theology for Everyone



What comes to mind with the word “Theology?” Boring? Academic? Dry? Elitist?

But “theology” is about God, the dynamic, surprising, and thrilling Creator who became flesh but will not sit still in a university library or in an academic classroom. “Theology” is rigorous thinking about the God who reveals himself not just to theologians, but to everyone who would seek him out.

Theology is for everyone.

We invite you to join a new venture sponsored by churches in Teesside and in partnership with Cranmer Hall, St John’s College at Durham University. Theology for Everyone is a series of lively presentations with interactive discussion about the exciting God who is revealed to us in Scripture. It is time for theology to explode out of the libraries and classrooms and spill out onto our city streets. Join us as we meet God afresh and seek to follow him in his mission.
