What makes for a good society?

TWO years ago this summer, a Churches Together in Britain and Ireland (CTBI) researcher and photojournalist working across the four nations set out with two questions.

These were: “What do we mean by good society? What can and do churches or faith groups contribute to the development of such a society?”

It's a simple and significant couplet. In a conversation taking place from 6-7.30pm at St John's tomorrow night (20th August, £5 per head), there is an opportunity to find out what people said, and to share and develop our own responses.

The speakers guiding us in these issues are the Rev Padraig Gallagher (Church in Wales) and June Fearns (Hamilton). The chair is the Rt Rev Dr John Armes (pictured, Episcopal Bishop of Edinburgh, and former rector of St John's Church, Edinburgh, where Just Festival has its base).

Come along and join the discussion.
