We need to talk about Race

Please keep checking here for resources on how we can respond to racial injustices, as individuals and as a church family. 

• 'We need to talk about race' by Ben Lindsay
The leader of a church in New Cross who seeks to open up the experience of many black people in white majority churches. SPCK have an offer on the ebook which you can buy here for 99p for the next few days - it asks and offers helpful dialogue and comes recommended.

St Paul's Cathedral, Resources on Hope •  Click here 

What does hope mean in this time? This is a time which raises hard questions – about how we live, about our values, about God. St Paul's asked people what was most on their minds, and then asked a wide range of writers, thinkers and theologians to reflect on these ‘hard questions’. Check out the video responses on the link above.
