Webinar to Ask 'What Just Happened?'

Tuesday July 13 2021

A webinar is to be held later this month to reflect on the responses to the Church of Scotland’s Listening Project.

‘What Just Happened: Perspectives on the Covid experience’ will examine what research is showing about the impact of the pandemic on the faith and experiences of people and congregations; and explore the importance of listening to other people’s perspectives.

The panellists will be the Rev Fiona Tweedie, who co-ordinated research into how congregations across Scotland responded to the first lockdown; Carolyn Merry is Director of Place for Hope; Steve Aisthorpe, co-ordinator of the Church of Scotland Listening Project; the Rev Muriel Pearson, the Minister at Cranhill Parish Church and Dave Kendall, the Church of Scotland’s Chief Officer.

The Listening Project spoke to over 200 people from a range of backgrounds and church involvement over last winter, seeking their experiences of the pandemic, the effect it had had on their faith and relationship with church. The final report was published last month and is available on the Church of Scotland website.

The webinar starts at 12 noon on Wednesday July 28 and is free. Register at Eventbrite.
