Clapham Circle meets once each month, at the St. Benedict House, February through May.

Together, we join in community to study liberation theology, explore how churches in the Anglican tradition can serve as a positive force for change, and work to transform unjust structures of oppression. Each month’s conversation will center on readings, podcasts, and videos. The resources for each month’s reading are provided below. We encourage you to use the local library or purchase the book(s) from BIPOC-owned bookstores (here’s a handy list). You are welcome to join the discussion even if you haven’t completed the readings.

Park along Penn and enter the front door at 3256 N Pennsylvania Street. Questions? Contact Demarius Walker, Trinity’s Associate for Spiritual Formation.
