2016 Annual Conference of Modern Church
Performing the Faith: Shakespeare in the World
Shakespeare, the Theatre and Theology Today
11th July to 13th July 2016
at High Leigh Conference Centre, Hoddesdon, Herts.
2016 is the 400th anniversary of the death of England’s – some would say, the world’s – greatest playwright.
Modern Church, the main society promoting liberal theology in UK churches, is recruiting a part-time administrator.
The administrator works from home for an average of 12 hours a week for a salary of approximately £6,000 per year. Travel expenses to meetings, etc. are paid. The administrator reports to the chair and has a day to day working relationship with the general secretary and will also liaise frequently with the website editor.
There will be a six month probationary period for the newly appointed administrator and it is hoped there might be a two month overlap with the current post holder who is due to retire at the end of 2015.

Three introductory talks by Prof. James Dunn
