James Crampsey SJ

A study of the Gospel Parables of Jesus

James Crampsey SJ

This is a course for all participants: participants are invited to chose two of the other three courses.

He will help the whole group consider these timeless stories of Jesus from Scripture.

To an Unknown God

Kensy Joseph SJ

How Science Worships what Religion Proclaims

Kensy Joseph SJ

The scientific quest seeks to study the mechanisms that govern living beings, societies and the universe itself; but at the deepest level it seeks that which is far beyond any of these. A look at the interplay between faith and reason, theology and science.
Is Religion Incompatible with Science?
What does Science Really Seek?
Finding the Logos in the World.

Future of the Church in Scotland

Catriona Fletcher

Ecclesiology for a post-modern age

Dr. Catriona Fletcher

We live in a time of unprecedented change which is providing new challenges to the Church.
Is the model of Catholic Church that has served us well since the Restoration of the Hierarchy in 1878 sustainable?
What are the pastoral needs of today?
Can the Church respond creatively?

Christ in Europe

Henry Longbottom SJ

Christ, Ignatius and the European Project

Henry Longbottom SJ

This course will look at the current European Union crisis, exploring how to interpret the signs of the times from a specifically Christian and Ignatian perspective.   Is there more to the European Project than the financial aspect that the British media almost exclusively focus on? The principle of countries working together also has implications for Scotland as part of the United Kingdom.

The Living Theology Course offers a weekend of serious, yet lively study on topics of interest relating to Scripture, religious tradition, faith, morals, history etc.
There are four courses available in lecture and seminar style.
This is very much a community event and open to all who are interested in Christian study.
No previous experience in theological study is necessary; the course is aimed at the intelligent non-specialist.


Friday 6.30pm – 9pm Saturday and Sunday 9.30am – 5pm


We suggest an offering of £45. If you find this too much, then please offer what you can afford.
