Charities, of which there are many and varied, have come under increasing scrutiny in recent times. This lecture will focus on their capacity or otherwise to bring about social justice whether by ‘incremental’ or ‘structural’ change. The role of faith and theology in doing so will also be considered.

Luther King House and The Centre for Theology and Justice are delighted to welcome Michael H Taylor to speak at our annual David Goodbourn lecture. Michael is Emeritus Professor of Social Theology at the University of Birmingham, former Director of Christian Aid and past Principal of Northern Baptist College.

Refreshments from 7pm, followed by the lecture at 7.30pm
