Peter Rollins and the Reverend Vince Anderson invite you to join them for an evening of dirty gospel and incendiary theology designed to challenge us all to embrace doubt, complexity and ambiguity. Not simply intellectually, but in the material practice of our hymns, prayers, sermons and rituals. Complete with altar call!
