Newman Circle talks 2018/19


Last year’s programme of talks on the Reformation attracted a consistently positive response from a wide range of faith backgrounds and resulted in numerous requests for an ecumenical follow-on series. In response, we have put together a number of talks which aim to examine some of the practical ways in which Christians are attempting to give witness to their stated belief in Jesus.


Thurs Oct 4th: Churches and the media. Brenden Thompson of Catholic Voices.

Thurs Nov 1st: Inclusivity: a gospel mandate. Fr Diamuid O.Murchu.



Thurs Jan 24th: Christians Against Poverty/Northfields job club. A Pambakian.

Thurs Feb 28th: Globalisation and inequality. Professor Philip Booth.

Thurs Mar 28th: Refugees and asylum seekers. Sarah Teather, Jesuit refugee service.

Thurs May 16th: Counselling today. Ginny Ellis, Ealing Abbey non-denominational service.

As previously, the talks will begin at 8pm in one or other of the Ealing Abbey parish rooms that will be clearly signposted on the night. Each talk will last for 40-45 minutes, followed by a like period for questions. Thereafter, we will have the same opportunity for ongoing discussions in the parish’s Benet Bar.

Everyone is welcome to attend and participate free of charge although a voluntary donation to help defray costs will be appreciated.
