Reformation 500: Sola Scriptura

Weekend 14th - 15th October with Dr Peter Williams

Reformation 500: Sola ScripturaOn 31st October 1517, a German monk's DIY carpentry on a castle door detonated an explosive rediscovery of God's grace that would change the world forever. Yet reflecting years later on the dramatic events surrounding the Protestant Reformation, Martin Luther freely confessed: 'I did nothing, the Word did everything'

Join us at Highfields Church Cathays as we examine that same Word - as explosive and controversial as ever - 500 years on.
