Events for March

Pádraig Ó Tuama is a poet and speaker from Cork, on the south coast of Ireland. He has worked in Belfast for the past 8 years, particularly in developing faith and peace resources for churches, retreats and teachers. On March 10 he will be leading a workshop entitled 'Who do you say that I am?': A queer conversation on identity and faith at Leicester Cathedral. Pádraig's work mixes poetry, theology, reflection and stories, and this workshop is certain to be a fascinating and illuminating look at one of the biggest issues in the modern church.

The event takes place at St Martins House, 7 Peacock Lane, Leicester, LE1 5PZ and costs £3 (concs £2). Booking is not required but if participants contact the Cathedral it will help them prepare the venue. Speak to Julia Unna on julia.unna@leccofe.org  or 0116 261 5362. See www.leicestercathedral.org for more information on the Cathedral itself.

Christian Communication in a Digital Age (CODEC) is a research initiative based at St John's College in Durham - a new institution in an old College exploring the Bible, the digital environment and contemporary culture. A key part of the initiative is its Big Bible project, which aims to increase people's biblical literacy alongside their digital literacy, offering online resources and tools for individuals and their churches. This Lent users can access material written by the former Bishop of Durham, Tom Wright.

Journeying is a not-for-profit organisation that takes small groups of Christians to the more off-the-beaten-track parts of Britain and Ireland. It uses its knowledge of Celtic spirituality to enable people to 'venture out, leave the every day and connect with God in creation, in each other, in ourselves.'

Over the course of 2012 it will visit much of the Celtic fringe - see www.journeying.co.uk for full details - but begins in March (26-31) with a visit to the Towy Valley in mid Wales. The trip will take in remote chapels, tumbling-river valleys, mountain roads and a Cistercian monastery. Accommodation will be 'self-catering in a barn-conversion full of character'. The total cost will be £330.
