The Peckard Lecture 2021 by the Revd Dr Sam Wells

Sam Wells, who is widely known as a preacher, pastor, writer, broadcaster and theologian will speak under the title 'Act Justly: Church, Kingdom and Civil Society'.

The unevenness of the suffering caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the climate change emergency and the Black Lives Matter movement will be among the topics he explores.

This is the inaugural Peckard Lecture, starting what we hope will be an annual series of talks taking up the theme of the Church in contemporary society. It was a subject close to the heart of Peter Peckard, the 18th century Dean of Peterborough and influencial anti-slavery campaigner.

Sam Wells is the Vicar of St Martin-in-the-Fields, London. He will discuss what the church’s aspirations might be for society, and how it might seek to bring those about, in corporate mission and individual discipleship.

 

Places can be booked here, a Zoom link to the talk on date you choose will be sent to ticket holders just before the event.
