Programme of Courses in 2013
"…being my first time in Rome, this course has brought tremendous benefits to my spirituality and perception of real ecumenism devoid of bitterness or suspicion. How I had wished that many more members of the Roman Catholic and Anglican Churches would be brought together more regularly in this way!"
“The course was great. If only there were funds to run it 1000 times over the problems of the Communion could largely be resolved.”
“I’m sure you have experienced those special moments when events and personalities converge in such a way that you arrive at a turning point in your life. The week of the course has been that for me.”

ROME SUMMER SCHOOL: IN THE STEPS OF ST AUGUSTINE
Monday 17 – Sunday 23 June 2013
Participants are invited to undertake a journey to the heart of early Christianity in Rome and from there on a ‘virtual’ pilgrimage to Canterbury in the footsteps of St Augustine. What happened to Christianity in that Anglo-Saxon culture and its spread beyond? Perceptions of distance and closeness, separation and unity will also be explored through debate on the current ecumenical experience.
The course is aimed at those likely to be in positions of leadership and influence in the Anglican Communion and all who wish to explore Augustine’s journey and where it led.
The leader of the course will be the Revd Dr Anders Bergquist, Vicar of St John's Wood, London, a member pof the Church of England's Liturgical Commission and a popular lecturer on Swan Hellenic cruises. More...
