Archbishop Cushley invites you to listen to four renowned speakers who will give their unique perspective on the current pandemic.

Faith in the time of Covid is a new series of online talks beginning this month featuring Bishop Philip Egan, Dr Mary Rice Hasson, Professor John Haldane and the Rt Hon Gordon Brown.

Archbishop Cushley said: "Our speakers come from the fields of religion, ethics, philosophy and politics respectively, and all share a Christian background.

"This is a unique moment in all our lives so I wanted to find out their approach to the covid crisis and to share that with others. I'm grateful that they've accepted my invitation to speak. They have each been given a blank page for their event so we can all look forward to a series of stimulating talks."

Each talk lasts 30 mins. Registration details below. Any registration queries/issues email
