Famous faces talk about their journeys of faith in special Eastertide series

Four recognisable names from modern British culture talk about their journeys of faith in a series of 'conversations under the dome'. at St Paul's

Comedian Frank Skinner, celebrity chef Clarissa Dickson Wright, former Poet Laureate Andrew Motion and detective novelist P D James will be the special guests at four Sunday evening events, entitled The Mind of the Maker, between Easter and Pentecost.

The series starts and ends with a celebration of the Eucharist, and the four conversations in between are held against the backdrop of music and readings reflecting the tastes and interests of our speakers.

It has been said that we are most like God when we are being creative and that this is the interpretation of what it means to be made in the image of God. The four main speakers have been asked to talk as they are people in the public eye whose work is creative and who have made their own journeys of faith in public and private.

Sunday 7 April - 6pm
