Understanding the Environmental Crisis

Date: Tuesday 19th May 2020

Time: 10 am to 4 pm

Cost: £10 which will include lunch  

Venue: Emmanuel Church, Barberry Place, Bure Park, Bicester, OX26 3HA

Children have been striking; activists have been demonstrating; what is the environmental crisis and what has it to do with the local church, mission and caring for the poor?  This day will bring an up-to-date approach to climate change and biodiversity loss, and touch on other issues such as food, water, soil and plastic.  How can we understand these issues as Christians and how can our response be fully missional?

Presenters:
Martin and Margot Hodson
are among the leading Christian thinkers on faith and the environment.  Martin is a plant scientist and environmental biologist.  He is operations director for the John Ray Initiative (JRI).  Margot is an environmental theologian and a vicar in the diocese.  She is on the management boards of both JRI and A Rocha UK.  The Hodsons have written a number of books together on the Christian faith and environmental issues.
