We run short courses to provide a context for this and details of what we plan to run over the coming months can be found below.

    Reformation 500th Anniversary – October 2017

    On 31st October 1517, the German Monk Martin Luther nailed 95 statements against indulgences to the door of the castle church in Wittenburg. Back then, this was the way to start a public discussion on a topic. An indulgence was a document issued by the church which declared that a person’s sins were forgiven. Indulgences could be bought for money and Luther’s 95 theses rightly condemned their sale as a corrupt practice that had no connection with the real way to be saved from sin. His arguments began the Reformation of the Church in Europe. On the Sundays in October to mark the 500th anniversary of this event, Christ Church Heiloo will focus on the great truths of the Reformation: Salvation by Faith and Grace alone, through Christ alone. The YouTube video above tells the story of Martin Luther’s life using playmobil figures! Enjoy!
