Rooted is a biweekly event for students and young professionals, providing regular opportunities to meet and develop friendships, and to tackle important theological, exegetical, and ethical questions with the Bible open. The event divides into two parts, the first focussed on eating and chatting, the second on reading, praying, and discussing, with opportunities for follow on conversations and fellowship afterwards.
Mixing undergraduate and graduate students and young professionals maintains our focus on diversity as a key attribute of church, and offers exciting opportunities for crosspollination of ideas and support.
Once every three years we aim to offer a complete narrative overview of the Bible story. Other series have covered challenging issues in contemporary apologetics and Christian philosophy, biblical interpretation as practiced by Jesus in the gospels, doubt, guidance, the nature and work of the Holy Spirit, mental health etc. etc. We’re always open to suggestions from the group.
This term we’re going to be digging deep into some amazing passages in the gospels. Here’s the programme:
