When SEARCH was launched in the late 1970s Archbishop Simms saw it as “a forum for discussion and honest enquiry” for the Church of Ireland that would “foster a better understanding in the face of spiritual problems and human perplexities”.
37 years later, our vision remains the same.
SEARCH offers a space for careful thinking and re-thinking in response to the Gospel and the concerns of today. Hence our new motto: “Thinking and Believing Today.”
Both the wisdom of experience and the challenge of new voices are needed. Honest enquiry requires both scholarship and fresh approaches. We hope you will always find these in our pages.
