The lectures, on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evening next week, will mirror Archbishop Justin Welby’s three priorities for his ministry.
The first lecture, ‘The Risk of Prayer’, will focus on the renewal of prayer and the Religious (monastic) life, which the Archbishop has described as having always been a vital precondition for the Church’s renewal throughout history.
In the second, ‘The Cost of Reconciliation’, he will explore the Gospel call for all Christians to be peacemakers, and consider the profound sacrifices involved in loving others despite deeply-held differences.
In the final lecture, ‘The Celebration of Witness’, the Archbishop will offer his vision for every Christian to be inspired and enabled to share their faith in Jesus through words and actions.
All are welcome to attend the free lectures, which will take place in the Cathedral’s Nave and be followed by a service of music, scripture and prayer sung by the Cathedral Choir. The lectures begin at 7.30pm each evening.
Videos of the lectures will be available from Easter Sunday on the Diocese of Canterbury website.
