Bishop of Durham on the sofa

Background

Speaking before the start of the first evenings show Bishop Paul told Premier: “We want to engage people in thinking about the Christian faith, areas of life and living and show how the Christian faith is relevant. That is why we are tackling subjects such as food and money – so we try to help people see that the Christian faith is about all of life.

“There are several twists along the way each night it’s different and only comes to light as people watch the themed soap area unfold. The other twist is that the audience supplies all of the questions that we discuss – via the audience in the show, via Twitter and via text.

“we don’t know what the questions are going to be so we respond to people – and sometimes those questions can be quite challenging.”

The first show was about food – with special guest Nikki and Mims – founders of RefUSE Durham – a charity combating food waste. The soap opera section of the show opened up questions about faith, food, poverty, celebration, feast and deeper questions on indulgence and waste. During the second half, the audience from near and afar quizzed the panel on a range of food-related questions – including the moral role of TV celebrity Chefs in the food waste debate as well as body image, food poverty and the role of the Christian faith in the overall debate.

The shows continue this week and are all free, and open to all.

Each event starts at 7.30pm, refreshments are served in the interval along with a warm welcome throughout.

Premier’s Northern Correspondent Ian Britton was invited to the opening night at St Nicholas’ Church, commonly known as St Nic’s, in the Market Square, Durham. Click below to hear Ian’s report.
