This year sees the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther posting his Ninety-five These
on the door of All Saints' Church, Wittenberg. This significant moment in history signalled the beginning of the Protestant Reformation in Europe, which went on to deeply influence the Church in England.
To mark this anniversary our Lent Reflections on Wednesday Evenings (8 March - 5 April) will focus on aspects of Luther’s theology, with a series of addresses given by Canon Nick Garrard.

Week 4: Reclaiming the Last Supper

Week 5: The Crucified Christ as Lutheran Icon
