Paul the Apostle is the author of many of the letters in the New Testament and one of the most important figures in Christianity. Paul’s influence on Christian theology, thought and practice cannot be underestimated and his missionary travels enabled Christianity to spread across Europe.
But Paul is also a controversial figure. His views on the role of women and on homosexuality as well as his early life as a brutal persecutor of early Christians make us feel uncomfortable today. And yet, Paul is part of our cultural and religious heritage referenced in various paintings, literature and more.
In this three-part sermon series we will learn more about Paul the Apostle.

Sunday, 3 June, 11am: “Paul’s missionary travels – Life is a journey”
