In-Person - A Place at the Table - London
@St Peter’s Vere Street, London
With loneliness and isolation reaching unprecedented levels in the UK, it’s never been more important for Christians to commit to practising hospitality. 
But for many of us, hospitality is a lost art – a practice we’ve forgotten, neglected, or distorted beyond all recognition. Amid material comforts and rife individualism, practicing hospitality can be daunting – we can worry that too much is expected of us, that we need to present a perfect home, or that something could go wrong when we let others into our space. 
But what if hospitality was actually simpler and yet more profound than we can imagine?
A Place At The Table, the new book from author, working professional, and mother-of-two Jo Swinney, in collaboration with her late mother, explores this crucial topic – drawing on biblical insights from the early church and a deep well of experience, and extending a warm invitation to embrace the loving kindness of others.

In-Person + Online - Loving Disagreement: Christian Wisdom for a Polarised World - London
@TBC
Revd Dr Christopher Landau draws on his doctoral research on the New Testament ethics of disagreement to explore how Christians can combine a commitment to love their neighbours with a desire to reveal truth – and how that can set the tone for the culture we’re in.
During the lecture, he’ll explain how John 13:35 offers a Christian foundation for loving disagreement, as Jesus teaches that mutual love within the church is what identifies it to outsiders: ‘By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.’ Practising love for our neighbours within and beyond the church means we’re called to be peacemakers and bridge-builders in every sector of society.
Recognising the need to seek both unity and singular truth, he’ll also unpack our call to live out Colossians 4:6 – ‘Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.’ What does it mean to be both gracious and ‘salty’ when we disagree?
