Lunchtime Conversations - The Shadow of the Galilean: The Quest of the Historical Jesus in Narrative Form

Tuesday 2nd May, 12:30 – 2:30pm
Leeds Church Institute,

20 New Market Street, Leeds, LS1 6DG

Simon Hall leads us in conversation about Gerd Theissen’s The Shadow of the Galilean. Combining New Testament study with the terseness of thriller writing, Theissen conveys the Gospel story in the imaginative prose of a novel. This is a story of our times, or how the gospels might have turned out if they were written by John Le Carre: racy, readable and full of incident.

Cake, Coffee and Conversation

Third Thursday of each month, 11am
Leeds Church Institute, 20 New Market Street, Leeds, LS1 6DG

Cake, coffee and conversation is an opportunity for LCI members, or those interested in the work of LCI, to come and meet the team. Over a slice of cake and a cup of coffee (or tea!) there will be the chance to reflect, talk, relax and explore LCI’s library. If you’re planning a shopping trip to Leeds, why not pop in on your way – Cake, coffee and community will be the perfect oasis!

Our next Cake, coffee and Conversation will be on 18th May


Wild City Spring

Saturday 6th May 9.45am – 1.00pm
At Church of the Epiphany Gipton, Beech Lane, Leeds, LS9 6SW
Led by Pippa Woodhams

A break to explore God, the city and the natural world, around an awe-inspiring Grade 1 listed building on a city estate.  There will be refreshments, poetry, prayer and time alone or with craft materials if you wish. Come dressed for the weather, but you are only outside as long as you choose. Bring a poem, object or picture, if you like, to help us celebrate spring!
