Anglican Social Engagement: Past, Present and Future

SEMINAR
Monday 23rd March 2015, 6.30pm
Wren Suite, Crypt of St Paul's Cathedral

The recent Bishops' letter on participation in the political process has highlighted the role of the church in social and economic issues. The church has long advocated improvements in working conditions, education and human flourishing. However, as the state has increasingly taken responsibility for many of these issues, often as a result of church campaigning, we sometimes forget how important it is to continue to speak and act for equality, stewardship and the common good. 

On the anniversary of Canon John Collins' birthday, this evening will look both at the history of Anglican social engagement, and also consider its future.

Malcolm Brown - Director of the Mission and Public Affairs Division, Church of England

The Revd Canon Paul Hackwood - Residentiary Canon at Leicester Cathedral; Chair of Church Urban Fund

Chaired by Barbara Ridpath - Director of St Paul's Institute.
