The Seventeenth Sunday after Trinity

Sunday 23 September 2018

In the first of our Autumn Lecture Series last Monday Rowan Williams spoke about what it means to encounter the other.

Address given at the Funeral of Sibyl Allen

Wednesday 18 July 2018

In the October November issue of the St Martin’s Review 1996 there is an article about Sibyl. The title of the article is “If in doubt ask Sibyl” That I think would be a very fitting epitaph for a woman who became a St Martin’s legend.
