Gavin Wakefield and Guests

From the monks of Lindisfarne to the Synod of Whitby, the North is historically considered to be the cradle of Christianity in England. But in today’s society is there a “gospel for the North”? Gavin Wakefield, author of Northern Gospel, Northern Church, asks if we can or should consider the North of England as a distinct entity with its own particular religious and spiritual identity. Gavin will be joined by fellow contributors in discussing what makes spiritual communities in the North unique, and yet an integral part of a larger nation and Church.

The Revd Dr Gavin Wakefield is Director of Training, Mission and Ministry in the Diocese of York and Director of Mission and Pastoral Studies at Cranmer Hall, Durham University.

Tickets: £5 (£4 concessions) available from the Gala Theatre Box Office 03000 266600 www.galadurham.co.uk
