‘Explore Day’ Friday 7 October 2016: Religion and Well Being
Leech Hall, St Johns College, Durham
Cranmer Hall and St John’s College Durham are delighted to welcome Nick Spencer from the noted thinktank, Theos – alongside Professor Walter Moberly and the Revd Helen Thorpe who will be leading a day entitled ‘Religion and Well Being’ on Friday 7 October.
‘Well being’ is much discussed in the contemporary world. What is rather less well known is the substantial academic evidence that shows how faith significantly contributes to well being. This is the subject of a new report by Theos, Religion and Well Being: Assessing the Evidence. In an age when faith is sometimes blamed for a wide range of societal ills, this is important data.
All are welcome to learn more about this subject on Friday 7 October, 9.30 to 4 pm, at the Leech Hall, St Johns College, Durham. Admission is free to students of Cranmer and St Johns, £10 to all others. To book a place contact Val Strickland on firstname.lastname@example.org
In addition, 4.30 to 5.30 pm on Friday 7 October in the Leech Hall will take place the public northern launch of Theos’ report, Religion and Well Being: Assessing the Evidence. All are welcome to this event, chaired by the Rt Revd Mark Bryant, Bishop of Jarrow, for which admission is free.
