2016 Conference

Last month, diocesan interfaith advisers gathered at Lambeth Palace for their annual conference. This is an opportunity to meet people from different parts of the country, share stories and hear about what is going on at a national level. This year we were privileged to be joined by Rev Dr Sam Wells, who gave a keynote address entitled ‘Being With Those of Other Faiths’, drawing on his recent book ‘A Nazareth Manifesto’. The full text of Sam’s talk is available to download here. In due course an audio recording will also be available.
