Modern Church sponsored day conference Saturday 2nd February 2019 9.30am-4pm, Liverpool.More...
Modern Church’s President, Professor Linda Woodhead, talks with Professor Gillian Evans in order to throw some light on the confusing and worrying situation involving our Vice President, the Very Reverend Professor Martyn Percy.
Linda and Gill are old friends and colleagues of Martyn, but that does not mean they automatically take his side in the present dispute dividing Christ Church. They both have long experience of the ways in which disputes brew in academic settings, and of how complaints are handled.
MODERN CHURCH General Secretary Jonathan Draper's response to a letter written by eleven bishops warning that a future pronouncement on same-sex relationships and marriage may have 'practical consequences' relating to the structure of the Anglican Communion and the Church of England, features in the Church Times, an independent Anglican weekly newspaper, published today.
As Modern Church enters its 120th year (it was founded on 27th July 1898), we have much to celebrate: a long history of publishing quality theological work that has contributed to and, from time to time, shaped the national theological debate, in the Church of England and beyond.
Modern Church has always been about communication: of ideas, critique, a theological method, and scholarship. How we continue and communicate that heritage and continuing work in a digital age and new context has become a pressing question.
Modern Believing is Modern Church's journal, published quarterly by Liverpool University Press, with articles promoting theological liberalism.
Students in universities, colleges and theological institutions which subscribe to the EBSCO database, can access Modern Believing online. Subscription to the journal is included for Modern Church members.
