Spring Schools

Eastern Synod and Thames North Ministers Spring School 2017spring-school-france-2017

The next Spring School is on 8th to 12th May 2017

At Maison Diocesaine de'Accueil, Merville, France

The theme is "Church in the Market Square"

Our programme for this Spring School will give us time to look at some of the current issues of being church in Europe. We expect to take some time to explore and reflect on the effects of BREXIT, the refugee situation and our place in an increasingly secular society. We might even find the space to touch on our Christian identity in the light of the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation!
