Event description


Alphacrucis College would like to invite you to a one-night event with Rev Dr Nigel Pegram

About the Masterclass

“Psychology is of the Devil!” “Christians’ faith is nothing more than illogical, magical thinking!” These two statements, and many falling in between, highlight the often uneasy relationship between the discipline of psychology and the Church.

Does it have to be this way? Can one be a Christian and use the insights of psychology? Can one be serious about psychological inquiry and still have faith in God? Is Christian counselling limited to prayer? Can Christians learn how to be more healthy individuals, lead more effectively and have healthier families and churches from psychological studies?

Join us in this masterclass as we unpack how these questions arise from different sets of assumptions. We will explore different ways of looking at the world and how we can benefit from a view where wisdom can be learned from both the Christian faith and psychology. Issues of mental health will be used as a practical example.

A zoom link will be sent to attendees shortly before the event begins.
