May events

In this year's Sarum Theological Lectures, Professor Keith Ward will take on four subjects that Christian people wrestle with: science and Christian belief (May 6), Christianity among the religions (May 8), faith and reason (May 13), and faith and morals (May 15). The series is entitled Rethinking Christianity. 'In these four talks I will show that Richard Dawkins and similar critics of God and religion have simply got it wrong,' Ward explains. 'Science and Christianity support each other quite strongly and the Christian faith is the most reasonable philosophical view there is. I shall also explore how Christianity relates to other religions and to secular morality, and argue that Christian claims can be true without being intolerant or divisive.' The lectures take place at Salisbury Cathedral and begin at 19.00. They cost £6 each (£20 for the series). Leaflets giving full details are available, and tickets can be obtained in advance from Sarum College (01722 424800).

Until May 23, the Wallspace gallery at All Hallows on the Wall, London presents the first of what will be an annual series of exhibitions showing the work of emerging and mid-career artists. Inspire: mortal & visible gathers together eight artists with a track record in highly individual explorations of the human condition. Wallspace was set up under the auspices of the Guild Council of All Hallows on the Wall to develop and curate a series of art exhibitions and other related events in the church building. Admission is free; for more details see www.wallspace.org.uk.

Students and young adults in the SPEAK network are attempting to break a record for making the biggest dress in the world. The Big Dress aims to shine a spotlight on unfair trade rules that uphold the exploitation of people, particularly those in the garment industry. You are invited to visit the dress on tour from May 8 to 12 in Endcliffe Park, Sheffield. There will be many activities held inside it (it functions as a marquee), ranging from debates on issues of world trade and the accountability of multinational companies, to music and comedy nights, and to open days for the public to find out more about these issues and take part in the campaigns. There will also be space to chill out and reflect.
Admission is free, apart from the cheese and wine party on May 8, when entry is £3 unwaged / £4 waged. For more information see www.speak.org.uk.
