‘Open Minds, Burning Hearts’

In November 2015, to mark the 50th Anniversary of the Vatican II Document, Dei Verbum, there will be a national Scripture conference to be held at Sedgley Park Conference Centre in Manchester.

The theme of the conference will be Luke’s gospel, and the keynote speaker for the duration will be Dr Ian Boxall, Associate Professor of New Testament at the Catholic University of America in Washington, DC.

Cardinal Vincent Nichols will also provide an opening reflection, and there will be a wide range of experiential workshops, including:

  • Lectio Divina
  • Ignatian Prayer
  • Contextual Reading
  • Preaching
  • Godly Play

‘Open Minds, Burning Hearts’ is taking place from 2:45pm on Tuesday 10 November until lunchtime on Thursday 12 November 2015.

The gathering is open to all, but the structure and content will be particularly pertinent for pastoral ministers, educators, preachers, liturgists, catechists, chaplains, youth ministers, scholars, students, those involved in social justice and evangelisation, and all who wish to engage more deeply with the Scriptures.


The fee for the conference with accommodation is £255, or £155 without accommodation.

For residential bookings completed before 17 July 2015, an early bird discount is available, bringing the cost down to £235.
