The Troy Exhibition at the British Museum: A Visit – followed by Dinner & Talk on the Quest for the Real Troy

The legend of Troy has endured for more than 3,000 years. The story of a great city, plunged into a 10-year war over the abduction of the most beautiful woman in the world, is irresistibly dramatic and tragic.

Following the visit the Sion College group will move on to the restaurant Il Castelletto where the Revd Dr Donald Easton, priest and archaeologist, author of Mysteries: the quest for Troy will talk to us about the search for the real Troy, and answer questions over dinner.

Herbert’s influence is still widely felt & this seminar supper at the Savile Club will give us the opportunity both to hear from and to ask questions of Canon Mark Oakley, Dean of St John's College Cambridge and latterly a distinguished Canon Chancellor of St Paul's Cathedral, where his contribution was characterised by an imaginative and prophetic flair.

Museum Visit and Seminar Supper: Lords Cricket Ground / Theology of Sport

Speaker: Lincoln Harvey, Asst Dean, St Mellitus

Lords – the home of cricket – is one of the world’s most famous sports grounds, steeped in over 200 years of history and tradition. The tour will include the grade 2 listed Pavilion, the legendary Long Room and players’ dressing rooms with their honours boards, and the MCC Museum. Members will be shown fascinating architecture and a great collection of art and memorabilia.

After the tour, the seminar lunch will be held a short distance away at Crocker’s Folly, a Grade II listed pub in St John’s Wood. Built in 1898 by architect Charles Worley, it is an opulent Victorian pub with fine marble fittings.

Our Speaker during lunch at Crocker’s Folly will be Lincoln Harvey, Assistant Dean at St Mellitus College and Lecturer in Systematic Theology, who will be talking to the Sion College party about the Theology of Sport.

Seminar Supper: Adult Social Care

Speaker: Lord Warner

The current inadequacies in adult social care provision are well known to members of Sion College. It is an issue of overwhelming importance not least because the number of over 65 year olds is forecast to increase by more than 40% over the next 20 years.

Lord Warner sits in the House of Lords, formerly on the Labour benches but now as an Independent. After a varied career in the Civil Service, he was Director of Social Services for Kent County Council and has held many positions in and around Government.

The Supper will be held at 1 Great College Street in Westminster: a historic Grade 2 listed building designed by James Miller with great emphasis on light and space and opened in 1913.

Seminar Supper: Business & Social Cohesion

Speaker: Catherine McGuinness, Chair of Policy & Resources, City of London Corporation

One of the most unsettling revelations of the last year, and in particular during the General Election campaign, was the clarity with which painful divisions across the United Kingdom were highlighted. The social fabric of the country had clearly been under significant strain and politicians of all parties as well as a wider group of the leaders of civic society and of the faith communities have become increasingly vocal in their expressions of concern. As is often the case in such circumstances the business world has been criticised and the City of London particularly.

This seminar supper will take place in the Basinghall Suite of the City's Guildhall and the caterers on the evening will be from The Clink who are regularly used by the City of London Corporation as well as more widely in the Square Mile. Based in Brixton Prison, the Clink trains prisoners who are working towards gaining their City & Guilds NVQs in Food & Beverage service, professional cookery & food hygiene. They have a stellar reputation for quality as their ratings on Trip Adviser testify.

Seminar Supper: Judaism in the light of Christ: Preaching on Challenging New Testament Texts

Speaker: Paula Gooder, Canon Chancellor St Paul’s Cathedral

Renowned New Testament and Pauline Scholar, now also Canon Chancellor of St Paul’s Cathedral, Paula Gooder is well known as an interesting engaging, thought provoking and entertaining speaker.

In this seminar supper she will help us to explore those difficult bits of the Bible that raise challenging questions about Christianity’s relationship with Judaism. At a time when anti-semitism is once more raising its ugly head, this seems is an important topic for the church to engage with once more. As many of the most difficult texts appear in the Holy Week and Easter liturgies Lent seems like an ideal time to get prepared.

Online application and payment is available for this event. To apply and pay online you will first need to register if you haven't done so already. Once the Administrator has approved your registration, you will be able to log in and access the online application/payment.
