Please join us for a free public lecture by Dr John Dickson on the reliability of the resurrection.
Over the past few years we have held a public lecture in our church auditorium on various issues where Christianity speaks into a topic of particular interest to our broader community. In the past we have had lectures on science, euthanasia, human sexuality, domestic violence, the historical Jesus, the origin of the Bible, climate change and others. This time Dr Dickson will be speaking on the reliability of the resurrection.
The event commences on March 21st at 7:30pm and concludes by 9pm. There will be a short time for questions before the conclusion of the evening.
The event will be held in the main church auditorium at 26 Carthew Street, Kirwan.

Dr John Dickson (PhD)
John’s story is eclectic. Starting out as a professional singer-songwriter, he now works as an author, speaker, historian, pastor, and media presenter. He was the Founding Director of the Centre for Public Christianity (2007-17). He has published 15 books, two of which became television documentaries, with a third, For the Love of God: How the Church is Better and Worse Than you Ever Imagined, released in Australian cinemas in June 2018. He teaches a course on the Historical Jesus at the University of Sydney, Australia, and researches the origins of Christianity in the Roman empire. He is an Honorary Research Associate at the University of Sydney, and during 2017-19 he is a Visiting Academic in the Faculty of Classics at the University of Oxford. In all that he does, whether in the media or the church, creative or academic, he strives to be a public advocate for the Christian faith in doubting times. Having lost his father in a plane crash at 9, John is sympathetic to the sorrows and questions of our world, and values his wife and three children above all other gifts of this life.
