CRES Day (Saturday 29th April 2017) at Ripon College Cuddesdon nr. Oxford 

with Andy Atkins and Margot Hodson

Andy Atkins

We have now fixed the programme for our CRES Day in April. We are very pleased to welcome Andy Atkins the Chief Executive of A Rocha UK, and former Chief Executive of Friends of the Earth, as our guest speaker. Andy will speak on the theme of “Saving Planet Earth – a serious role for the Church?” He will look at whether it is worth mobilising the church on the environment and how to do it.

In the afternoon one of our resident environmental theologians, Rev. Margot Hodson, will look at the topic “Why Environmental Ethics?” This is an absolutely crucial area for understanding how we should treat the world, but is rarely discussed by Christians. So while Andy will look at “How?” Margot will consider “Why?”

The themes explored will be highly relevant to those on the CRES course, but could be taken as a stand-alone day for all interested in the environment. The day is OPEN to everyone, but places are limited so book soon!

The deadline for booking is 13th April 2017, and the cost for those external to the CRES course is £25 including lunch and refreshments (for all CRES students, tutors and steering group the cost is included in fees, but please indicate that you are coming!)
