Peterborough Theological Society

The Peterborough Theological Society is an ecumenical society, which exists to promote theological discussion and debate for all levels of interest. We invite a wide variety of speakers, most of whom are leading authorities in their fields.

Meetings are generally held on the last Wednesday of each month (excepting July, August and December) at the Friends’ Meeting House, unless otherwise stated. This is located on Thorpe Road, on the left just over the railway bridge heading west. Parking is available. All meetings commence at 7.30pm with a break for refreshments at 8.30pm, followed by discussion with the speaker.
