'The Word of the Lord' conference is a unique opportunity for the Catholic community in England and Wales to celebrate Scripture at the heart of the Church. 

This national event is taking place between 24 - 26 April in Durham focusing conversation around three key areas of scriptural engagement: Catholic Biblical Theology; the Scriptures in the Church’s pastoral ministry; and the Bible in mission and dialogue.

In this Year of Faith, participants will be able to listen to renowned speakers (including Fr Timothy Radcliffe OP, Michelle Moran, and Fr Henry Wansbrough OSB) share about the foundation and inspiration that Scripture provides for our beliefs, identity and practice. There will also be opportunities for workshops, participant contributions and discussions, and a visit to the tomb of St Bede in Durham Cathedral.
