Church and Academy is an initiative of the Diocese of Glasgow and Galloway which brings together both the pastoral and academic dimensions of the Church’s lived experience.
Meeting in the Theology and Religious Studies Building at 4, The Square, on the main campus of the University of Glasgow, it seeks to provide a forum where ideas, both old and new, can be shared and through which relationships can be strengthened. It seeks to serve the Church and the community by offering a space of honest enquiry. All are very welcome.
Due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, currently, the Church and Academy seminars are meeting via Zoom.
