Featured Past Events


Read about current issues in religion and social policy from members of RASP and the University of Divinity. The University consists of eleven colleges representing a diverse range of Christian traditions so most blogs will reflect the perspective of our members but in engagement with a range of other perspectives. Contributors should send article material to the Director of RASP, Revd Dr Gordon Preece.
