Internationally famous theologian Werner Jeanrond is coming to Birmingham to speak to ACTA on November 11th. He's giving us a whole day of his valuable time.


He will be at Newman House, the Birmingham University's Catholic Chaplaincy on Harrison's Road in Edgbaston, B15 3QR. Open for coffee 10.30, first talk at 11.00. End at 4pm.
There's plenty of free parking, both in their car park and on roads close by. There are bus and train options too that you can find online. The Chaplaincy is a couple of miles from New Street Station.
In the morning Werner will be speaking about the on-going evolution of the Church, and the afternoon session will address the changes that will inevitably happen to the role of the laity. He is currently working on a book entitled reasons for hope.  After he spoke at our London Conference we certainly left feeling inspired and hopeful.
We are not charging for the event as he is kindly not charging us, but we will pay Werner's train fare from Oxford and paying £20 per hour for use of the building, so we would appreciate some donations if possible.
Please bring a packed lunch. We'll provide tea and coffee on arrival and during the day. You're very welcome to bring any interested family or friends - they don't have to be ACTA members - or Catholics!
If you want to see how interesting he is, you could watch a television interview he gave (in English) about the Church, on You tube -here's the link-
