Here I Stand

Monday, 24 April @ 19:30 - 21:00

£5

Revd Guntars Reboks

We are delighted to welcome the Abbey’s very own Revd Guntars Reboks, himself a priest of the Latvian Lutheran Evangelical Church Overseas, to explore with us the contribution of Lutheranism to Global Church.

On the 31st of October 1517 a German monk and theologian named Martin Luther pinned a document to the door of the Schlosskirche in Wittenberg protesting against the abuse of indulgences in the teaching and practice of the Church of his day. Within just a few weeks, an obscure Augustinian monk in a backwater university town had become a household name and was the subject of chatter from Lisbon to Lithuania.

Luther could never have imagined the outcome of his protest and the church which arose from the heat of the dispute remains one of the strongest Protestant denominations with about 75 million members worldwide. Our own Church of England emerged from the same crucible fired with reforming zeal.

But what does Lutheranism bring to the global church in the 21st century? Where now stands the protestant in the wider context of the church? Come and find out.
