The Centre for Theology & Community – Reading the Bible with the Poorest
If there is truly to be (in Pope Francis’ words) a “Church of the poor” and not just a “Church for the poor,” then the poorest need to be speaking in theological discourse, and not merely spoken about. With the support of the MB Reckitt Trust, the Centre for Theology and Community is developing facilitated Bible Study sessions to bring the voice of grassroots leaders with whom we work more directly into the process of theological reflection. This will both deepen their own theological and spiritual engagement with the issues they identify as most salient, and will enable resources to be produced which bring their voice into the wider theological discourse of the Church – and which enable Christians in other parts of the UK to replicate the process.
