Our aim is for programmes to be open and broad in their content and to enable all people to explore and question their own beliefs and understanding. Our latest initiative is to run a series of lectures tied to the seasons and themes of the Christian year. Conflict and Reconciliation... Drawing on the expertise of renowned speakers with a wide spectrum of interests, this inaugural lecture series will explore faith, conflict and reconciliation. We will look at connections between the religious and secular worlds, and how faith and life interact, shape and influence each other. Our speakers bring first hand knowledge and experience of these topics and we are delighted they have agreed to take part in this venture. Dunblane Cathedral is a place of welcome, education and hospitality and these lectures are open to all. We therefore invite you to join us in what promises to be both insightful and thought-provoking. 1 December 2019 - Advent Srebrenica - When neighbours become enemies The Very Rev Dr Lorna Hood OBE After a trip to Srebrenica in 2014 the Very Rev Dr Lorna Hood agreed to set up and Chair the Remembering Srebrenica Scottish Board, now a Scottish charity.
