Theology Day

A typical Theology Day consists of registration and refreshments, followed by a period of conversation/ presentation/ lecture. The conversation then continues as participants are given a chance to continue their discussions with one another. Morning presentations are followed by a complimentary lunch for all participants and most evening sessions include refreshments.
