Purpose

The Lincoln Theological Network was set up in March 2011 with the specific aim of providing an opportunity in Lincoln to hear respected and published theologians of all denominations and faiths.

How We Operate

  • We operate as an ‘open’ network with no actual membership and no specific affiliation to any Church or faith group. Some people who attend claim no religious faith but are interested in the place religion has in society and current thought.
  • Lectures are open to all people who are interested in the subjects being presented. Our approach encourages lively discussion and debate in a constructive atmosphere.
  • Lectures are organised by the Chancellor, networking with colleagues in the churches and involved in ministerial development.
  • Lectures are open to all people who are interested in the subjects being presented. Our approach encourages lively discussion and debate in a constructive atmosphere.

  • We have an excellent book stall provided by Unicorn Tree Books.
