WYSCOS - the West Yorkshire School of Christian Studies - is 'a Christian education centre committed to 'exploring the power of faith in learning for every aspect of life'. This month it is mid-way through a series entitled Ways of Knowing: Biblical wisdom for Christian learning. The six workshops - for anyone who wants to know more about what it means to follow Jesus as a teacher, communicator or student - began in January, but there's still time to catch at least the last two.

On March 8 the evening will focus on 'Exploring and affirming different kinds of knowing: Blacksmith, midwife, artist, teacher' and March 22 looks at 'Exploring the ways we teach and learn: Cultivating knowledge with imagination.' Both sessions, led by experienced educator Mark Roques, ask - and, one hopes, answer - how the biblical story can inspire us to nurture faithfulness and obedience to God in all areas of our lives. WYSOCS says that the style of the sessions will be interactive and engaging.

The venue is Leeds Church Institute, 20 New Market Street, Leeds LS1 6DG and he course is free to attend; light refreshments are provided but donations will be invited to help cover costs. Those wishing to attend are encouraged to book at


An extended contributors page last month meant that we didn't get a chance to tell you about an event sponsored by our big sister Church Times in association with Greenbelt. The Bloxham Festival of Faith and Literature will take place over the weekend of 15-17 February - you may have time to hotfoot it up to Bloxham to take part. You'll want to, too: the programme ranges from fiction (with award-winning novelists Jasper Fforde & Patrick Gale) to poetry (with Pádraig Ó Tuama and others) to theology and apologia and a lot more. See for last-minute details.
