Theology in the dark

Theology in the Dark is an occasional series offered in collaboration with Booth University College, in which we explore the idea that sometimes theology is best done through a medium such as film. The basic approach is to view a movie together, and then to spend some time in conversation, debriefing what we all saw. Sometimes these evenings are held in the screening room at Booth (which has a good sized screen, great sound and decent chairs), while on other occasions we arrange to meet at a movie theatre or at the church.

Booth University College is located at 447 Webb Place, and we’d ask that you plan to arrive between 6:40 and 7pm so that we can let you in the locked front doors!
