Study & Fellowship Group, Mary Magdalene: the Woman at the Heart of Christianity

Was Jesus’s most important disciple a woman? For many centuries in the Western Christian Church the place of Mary Magdalene has been marginalised. It was only in 2016 that Pope Francis declared Mary Magdalene as “the Apostle to the Apostles”. The resurgent interest in the person and significance of Mary Magdelene may be one of the signs of a restoration and rebalancing of the masculine and feminine energies within the Christian tradition.

Our resource for study and reflection will be the book, The Meaning of Mary Magdalene by Cynthia Bourgeault.

We will meet in a home in Shoreham-by-Sea from 7pm-9.30pm on Monday 30 April and Monday 21 May. We’ll start the evening with a simple shared meal. After the meal there will be time for shared reflections on the book and time for meditation and prayer. The group size is limited to 16 people. Before signing up please make sure you can make both dates: 30 April and 21 May. GROUP NOW FULLY SUBSCRIBED.
