Well, you might not have expected a title like that from a Methodist-founded blog đŸ™‚ but Pub Theology provides the opportunity for people to meet in a neutral venue – a so-called ‘Third Place‘ – and discuss important issues from perspectives of faith, doubt and no faith. Rob Ryan says:

Tonight was a great experience as people shared, discussed, disagreed … and all left after a couple of drinks still being friends. I always wonder after a pub theo why ‘the wider church’ can’t manage to discuss contentious issues in the same respectful way.

Where could you meet in a Third Place? Whom would you invite? What would you discuss?

  1. Overseas on deployment, I used to do this with guys. We’d go to dinner, have a drink, talk, fellowship. I just don’t have any problem with it.
