Renowned author and social critic Dr Os Guinness will be giving a talk at Adam Road Presbyterian Church at 8.00 pm on Wed 20 April 2016. Listen as he issues the challenge for our confidence and courage in two talks:

Talk 1 – Renaissance: Is society beyond hope of redemption and renewal? Throughout history, Christ has transformed entire cultures and civilisations. Can the church be revived to become a renewing power?

Talk 2 – Impossible People: Which has done more damage to the Christian church than all the persecutors in history? Would it be modern ideas such as secularism and relativism, or modernity itself?
