The Edge | City Bible Forum

The Edge

A quarterly TED-style talk both live and online tackling a key social trend, followed by Q&A

Short. Sharp. Smart.

Everything has an edge. The edge of society, where conformity ends and creativity begins. The bleeding edge of technology. The edge of reason.

City Bible Forum invites you to take a look over the edge. To understand where our current thinking is taking us. To see what’s happening now, what’s coming next, and what you can do about it.

What is The Edge? A local and online event that is short, sharp and smart.

(Two talks) Two critical thinkers will take you on precise, TED-style 15-minute tours of a key social trend that’s transforming our world – then brace themselves for your questions.

(One panel) After the talks, our moderator will allow you to interview the speakers and take them to the edge of the topic. It all happens quickly, pay attention during the talks and send in your questions.

Check out the videos below of past talks, then come along to the next Edge event.

Please contact Russ Matthews for further information.
