The Church has always been given great thinkers, those who can deepen our understanding of God and help to explain or defend it in difficult times. Amongst the greatest of these is St Augustine of Hippo (354-430AD), pictured above. Over the next few weeks the Cathedral is offering local young people the chance to learn about their insights in a series of sessions entitled 'Faith and Philosophy'. Four early evening meetings will explore themes such as arguments surrounding the existence of God, science and religion and the relationship between knowledge and belief. The sessions have been advertised through local sixth form colleges, but are open to anyone who is around sixth-form age.
