Forced Displacement of peoples and species is one of the most urgent issues of our time.  There are over 50 million refugees, asylum seekers and other displaced people in the world today.  This is the picture we see but alongside this many species are also displaced or eliminated due to war and movements of peoples.  While politicians’ debate the former they tend to ignore the latter but as Christians we need to see a larger and more inclusive picture. 

But how can we as Christians respond to the crisis we see unfolding before us?

Join us for our theological summer school which offers an opportunity to engage with this reality through the use of social, cultural, political, theological and personal studies and resources. 

Participants will be invited to dialogue and think critically about this issue and develop a theological understanding as well as practical approaches to contribute to building a more just and equal society.

The programme consists of:

  • Input from leading scholars in the field
  • Small group lead reflection and study with a tutor
  • Critical dialogue and action responses.

The team for the summer school is: Dr Sr Sheila Curran; Prof Lisa Isherwood & Dr Megan Clay

NB: The Summer School will run from 9.30 a.m. on Friday 14th July through to Sunday 16th July lunchtime.  Additional accommodation for the Thursday and Sunday nights is available and can be added on to your booking.
