Please see below for a list of our upcoming CSPT lectures This list is updated regularly.

In addition to our main programme of events, we also host a series of theological lectures aimed at discussing a Christian response to social and political issues. These lectures delve deeply into theology, and allow for a more substantive audience interaction with the opportunity for a seminar-like discussion over wine afterwards.
