LIFE & LEARNING @ LUDLOW
Life & Learning is the name of an adult learning programme which seeks to broaden understanding and initiate debate on theology, social issues and the arts.
The programme offers a range of opportunities for
study and learning. It is intended to stimulate the interest of people of faith
who want to reflect deeply on how their faith impacts on their engagement with
the world around them, and also appeal to those with no strong faith commitment
who are interested in exploring the Christian perspective on contemporary
