Sign up here to receive p.s. by email and other updates from Centre for Contemporary Christianity in Ireland.



Welcome to p.s., an email and web discussion forum from ContemporaryChristianity.org. Virtual and voluntary, we issue p.s. every two or three weeks.

In line with our aims, it seeks to "provide informed, credible and practical comment and analysis, rooted in biblical reflection and theological thought" on contemporary matters of broad public concern in Ireland.

We're aiming to engage Christian minds with issues in the public square, to inject new perspectives and provoke discussion.
