First Friday of the Month 6.30-8.00pm on Zoom and In-Person

In 2020, I founded 'Beer and Theology Cambridge' (@BeerTheologyCam), an informal seminar, which meets on the first Friday of the month in-person and on zoom (6.30pm-8.00pm). 

Two items on the agenda: drink beer (or another preference); discuss theology.

It is co-sponsored by Fulcrum, the Cambridge Centre for Christianity WorldwideEkklesia and St Edward's Church, Cambridge. It is a branch of the original Beer and Theology London, the details of which are here.

It is open to all. 

Sessions are now 'blended' ie in-person' at St Edward King and Martyr Church in the centre of Cambridge, Pea's Hill CB2 3PP and on zoom.
