A series of lectures looking at religion, sex and gender is being held at Keele University.

The lunchtime lectures, which take place from 1pm to 2pm every Wednesday until March 23, will cover a variety of topics including Christianity and human sexuality, an introduction to feminist theory and celibacy in religious vocation.

The wide range of speakers includes the Reverend Dr Kirsty Coleman, co-moderator of the General Assembly of the United Reformed Church; the Revered Colin Coward, director of Changing Attitude, a network of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and heterosexual members of the Church of England; and the Reverend Kate Coleman, former President of the Baptist Union of Great Britain. 

All lectures are open to the public and there is no charge for attendance, although donations from non-students are welcome. All lectures take place in the University chapel except February 9 and February 23, which will be held in the Chancellor’s Building.
