Faith and the City

Faith and the City
Wednesday, 22 June, 2011, 6.00 pm

Historically, religion has strongly influenced the evolution of
cities, through architecture, politics, community cohesion, and so
on. Faith-based organisations play a less prominent role in cities
today but they continue to shape the various debates on cultural
identity, social practice, and morality. In view of this, our
roundtable discussion asks the question “what role does faith
play in shaping the contemporary city?”.

Panellists:

Dwight Swanson (Nazarene Theological College)
Terry Binnington (St. Peter’s House)
Chris Baker (University of Chester)

The session was chaired by Andrew Karvonen
