Flourishing in a Hostile World

Posted by Ros Clarke, 22 May 2018

How did the early church flourish through centuries of hostility and persecution? Lee Gatiss examines what it means to flourish in a hostile world.

The first session of the 2018 Church Society Conference took us back to the early centuries of the church’s life and growth. Our Director, Revd Dr Lee Gatiss, showed how the church flourished despite persecution and political opposition, and drew out several important challenges to consider for the contemporary church.
