Justice is at the heart of the character of God. The call to do justice comes directly from God and has been central to the understanding of disciples of Christ throughout the centuries. Although the church was confused about the evil of slavery up to only 200 years ago, we now understand our unequivocal mandate to bring freedom to captives. But how should the church bring justice to victims of modern slavery? What do 21st century
abolitionists look like?
Join us for our School of Theology Open Evening as Tiff and James explore the biblical foundation for doing justice, and draw upon the learning and lives of some abolitionists and theologians from across the ages to inform the church’s response to modern slavery today.
The evening will begin with dinner at 6:30pm, followed by a time of worship and then a talk from Tiff & James Ewins QC on 'A Christian Response to Modern Day Slavery', and then Q&A.
