Each special worship service is open to all and will celebrate the Reformation’s impact, legacy and enduring importance, both locally and globally.
The first celebration takes place on Tuesday, 17th October 2017 at Abbey Presbyterian Church, Parnell Square, Dublin 1.
Faith at the Crossroads isn’t a lecture, but a celebration that combines worship, reflection and discussion. Musicians and singers from New Irish Arts will lead worship, which will include a new arrangement of one of Luther’s hymns.
Those attending will also get a flavour of some of the key moments in Martin Luther’s life from a 1983 film staring Jonathan Pryce as Luther.
At each event a panel will reflect on some of the key aspects and legacy of the Reformation. At Abbey Church we will have our former Moderator, Very Rev. Dr. Trevor Morrow of Lucan Presbyterian Church on the panel, along with a church historian and a social commentator.
There are two further opportunities to share in this event:
18th October 2017 – The Waterside Theatre, Londonderry
19th October 2017 – Assembly Buildings, Belfast
Dr. Conrad Mbewe will bring a global perspective to the Reformation. He has served as pastor of Kabwata Baptist Church since 1987 and as principal of the Lusaka Ministerial College. He holds an MA in Pastoral Theology and a PhD in Missions. Among other roles Dr. Mbewe is the chancellor of the African Christian University in Lusaka and a board member of Covenant College in the eastern province of Zambia. He is also the editor of a theological journal called Reformation Zambia which is published three times a year. Dr. Mbewe has been a speaker at the Bangor Worldwide Missionary Convention.
Music will be provided by singers & instrumentalists from New Irish Arts.
This is a free event.
