Lord God, creator of the world,
we rejoice that you can make all things new.
Give us grace to trust you daily
for fresh love and inspiration,
fresh courage and perseverance.
Make us always ready to see the new ways you show us
and to follow you in whichever direction you lead.

Previous series
  • The May 2007 series of Space in the City was titled “After Anne Frank”.  The programme page includes the recording of Prof. Michael Taylor’s talk.
  • In January-February 2006, Rev. Joel Edwards gave four talks under the general title “Respect”.  The texts of his talks have been made available by the Evangelical Alliance.
  • A few years ago Bishop John Baker (formerly Bishop of Salisbury) gave a series of four talks on the Lord’s Prayer.  The texts of those talks are on the Kingdom Living web site.

Future series

For the next series of Space in the City we will welcome Richard Harries (Lord Harries of Pentregarth), who was Bishop of Oxford from 1987 to 2006.  Lord Harries will give four talks under the title “The Re-enchantment of Morality: Wisdom for a Troubled World” (also the title of his forthcoming book).  The series will run from 10th to 31st January 2008.

Space in the City is organised by members of the churches of St Lawrence with St Swithun, St Peter’s and the United Church, in conjunction with the School of Spirituality.
