Entertaining Angels Unawares: Angels in the Bible, Music and Art

Patrick Craig

A recent poll revealed that 50% of people believe in angels, and the idea of a personal, guardian angel is much-loved. But angels in the Bible are not always like that. They are messengers of God, sometimes bringing comfort, but often they bring life-changing, disturbing news and can be shocking and transformative presences.

Saturday 29 September 2018 2 - 4.30pm
Wren Suite £18 (bursaries are available)

On the Feast Day of St Michael and All Angels, we will explore angels in the Bible through some of the extraordinary music, painting and poetry they have inspired, including the deeply mysterious story of Jacob wrestling with the silent, nameless angel in Genesis, and the life-changing, world-changing visit of the Angel Gabriel to Mary in the Gospel of Luke.
