Adult Education and Formation: The Birth Narratives in Scripture and Images

What do the gospel narratives say about the birth of Jesus? And why are they different? Have artists simply recorded the texts visually or have they provided an interpretation?

Come and consider the story of the birth of Jesus and how they have been recorded and transmitted.

Presenter: The Rector.

Concludes Sunday, December 17.

9:30 to 10:30 in the undercroft.
