Seeking the Welfare of the City: What Can the Church Contribute to the Common Good?


The Bishop of Sheffield joins our God and the Good talk series.

This talk will explore how, in pursuit of the common good, the church has something to offer in policy-making as well as in project-delivery, in what might be called a prophetic role and not merely a pastoral one.
