Spring into Spiritual Growth at

St Barnabas Anglican Church, Warrington

Spring Study Series 2012


Looking at religious experiences through the work of Sir Alister Hardy

In 1969, Sir Alister Hardy, on retiring as Professor of Zoology at Oxford University, asked members of the public to respond to this question: "Have you ever been aware of, or influenced by, a presence or power, whether you call it God or not, that is different from your everyday self?"  Forty-three years later, the The Alister Hardy Religious Experience Research Centre, is still receiving responses to that question.

There will be 5 sessions, held on successive Tuesdays, beginning 30 October from 7.30-9.00pm.  The first  session will be an introductory one, and the other four sessions will be case studies on particular types of religious experience. 

All sessions will be conducted at St Barnabas and will be presented by Rev Roger Barker.  The course is open to all interested people and there will be no charge.

For more information, or to register your interest in attending, please contact Roger on 465.7719.
