The War on Wonga - Five Years On

"The War on Wonga" - Five Years On: A Celebration and Challenge of a Prophetic Call
Tuesday 10th July 2018, 7:30pm-9:30pm
St Paul's Hammersmith, Queen Caroline Street, London, W6 9PJ

Summer 2018 marks the 5th anniversary of Archbishop Justin Welby's challenge to the church to help promote affordable finance with credit unions - aka the "War on Wonga."

Join St Paul's Institute, Theos and Capital Mass for a stimulating and challenging evening of theology and practical challenge, as together we ask these questions:

  • What social injustice caused that prophetic call?
  • Where are we now in responding to this?
  • What are the new challenges for the next 5 years in London, as together we seek a fairer financial system for all?

Speakers include:

  • The Rt Reverend Dr Graham Tomlin, Bishop of Kensington on The Theology of Just Finance 
  • The most Reverend Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury by pre-recorded interview 
  • Baroness Maeve Sherlock, OBE, Labour peer. Shadow DWP Minister, House of Lords on The Sweetspot of Campaigning 
  • Tim Thorlby, Managing Director, Clean for Good on The Importance of a Living Wage
  • Anna Jones, Board of Directors, London Community Credit Union on The Transformative Power of Credit Unions
