About this event

Growing Good: Growth, Social Action and Discipleship, a recent report from CUF and Theos, demonstrated the close relationship between church growth, discipleship and social justice. As the Church of England focuses on social justice during Lent, this webinar explores how the theology and practice of social justice can be central to the life of the Church.

Chaired by Rt Revd Adrian Newman (CUF’s Bishop in Residence), speakers at the webinar include:

  • Revd Prebendary Dr Isabelle Hamley, theological advisor to the House of Bishops, and author of Embracing Justice, the Archbishop of Canterbury's Lent book 2022.
  • Revd Canon Dr Anderson Jeremiah, lecturer in theology and politics at Lancaster University, and a CUF Trustee.
  • Chris Forster from Transforming Plymouth will share how a theology of social justice informs and animates their work with churches and communities.

This event is brought to you by CUF's Living Theology Forum, a meeting place for the mutual exchange of share theological ideas about Christian social action, and the Growing Good Toolkit, a six session course that helps churches reflect on and implement the findings of the Growing Good report.
