God and the Moneylenders: Championing Financial Justice

CLERGY LEARNING DAY
Monday 24th November 2014
10.00am - 2.30pm
Crypt of St Paul's Cathedral

St Paul's Institute and the Centre for Theology and Community (CTC) are hosting a clergy learning day exploring the theology of money and practical initiatives that can be taken by churches to promote financial justice and engage with issues of economics and social wellbeing. Emphasis placed on the Archbishop's Task Group on Responsible Credit & Savings, the work of the Church Credit Champion Network, and exploring the current landscape of practical initiatives.

This interactive workshop day for clergy will have a number of sessions tailored to explore practical initiatives, and the logistics of supporting them within your parish, along with a close examination of the theology of money and how we can bring parishioners and local communities into dialogue with the wisdom that the Christian tradition has to offer our money-focused world today.

Speakers include:

Sir Hector Sants - Chair of the Archbishop's Task Group

Canon Dr Angus Ritchie - Director of the Centre for Theology and Community (CTC)

The Rt Rev'd Dr Peter Selby - Author of An Idol Unmasked: A Faith Perspective on Money

David Barclay - Senior Network Co-Ordinator, Church Credit Champion Network

Rosina St James - Community Organiser, Just Money Campaign

The day will be provided free of charge and will include a sandwich lunch and refreshments. Further information and a full agenda will be provided for those who register.

This event is open only to clergy or those in training.
