Theology in action

No matter how strong our faith, our love for God, his church, and the Bible, we can never understand everything: we all have to live with some uncertainties.


Many Christians feel the urge from time to time to explore these uncertainties, to talk through ideas related to our faith. We may have vague, half-formed questions that we would like to clarify, or questions to which we have not been able to find a satisfactory answer. We can experience niggling doubts: for example, about some statements in the creeds. Sometimes when reading the Bible or listening to a sermon we have a glimpse of a new understanding that we would like to investigate fully.​


“Theology in Action” is an on-line forum in which participants are encouraged to engage in open and positive discussions.

Some of the topics that have been discussed in the past year are:

  • In what sense is Scripture authoritative?

  • What does it mean to call the church the Body of Christ?

  • What are sacraments, and why are they important?

  • How can we explain apparent contradictions in the Bible?

  • What is the baptism of the Holy Spirit?

  • What do we mean when we talk of Jesus’ return? How do we interpret Acts 1:11:

  • ‘This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.’?

  • How central is Jesus’ return to our faith here and now?
