Marcus Clarke Answers Your Questions About Anglicanism Reloaded II

23 February 2016
Marcus ClarkeMy son Marcus has been talking a lot  about the upcoming Anglicanism Reloaded II event.  It certainly sounds exiting and people  have been even started to ask me  question about the event!  I'm no expert so I thought I would get Marcus to answers some of  our questions and post his answers in this article.


So Marcus what is Anglicans Reloaded II ?

It's many things; a convention, a day of teaching, discussion, and learning that will begin and end with worship. It's a way to bring your ideas and questions and perspectives. This years theme is "How Do We See Jesus".  The purpose of  the event is to explore social issues that challenge us to respond meaningfully and faithfully and as such, to equip Anglican Christians to confidently live their faith and to be agents of transformation.

So where and when will it take place?

On Sunday 28th, February at  Queen’s Park Savannah, Port of Spain from 9am to 6pm.

So what's on the Agenda?

It starts with a Eucharistic Service at 9am. There will be a special keynote address by  Professor Kortright Davis.  There will be lunch and an afternoon discussion and plenary session and finally we wrap up with closing worship at about 5.30pm. Check our the official info sheet for more details about the programme.
