Description: There are many reasons why believing in God can be difficult and it is good to be honest about these and to be able to explore them together.
The preachers at Evensong on Sundays through the term will look at some of the main difficulties. These range from whether the existence of evil makes belief in God morally objectionable to whether prayer changes anything.
