St John's Festival Pulpit

7,14,21,28 Aug | 6.-8.30PM | St John's Church | Free/unticketed

For almost 200 years St John’s Church has stood at a crossroads: a community of faith in the heart of the city. The Festival Pulpit draws on this experience and aims to give a platform to voices that form, challenge, and engage both the secular and the religious. This year we will explore the intersection of public life and religion in the UK.

Our speakers will be:

7 August | The Baroness Julia Neuberger DBE | Senior Rabbi to the West London Synagogue

14 August | The Rt Hon. the Baroness Elizabeth Butler-Sloss GBE, PC | Commission on Religion and Belief in British Public Life

21 August | The Rt Hon. the Lord David Hope of Craighead KT, PC | Lord High Commissioner to the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland'15 and '16

28 August | The Very Revd Dr John Hall | Dean of Westminster Abbey Join us for Evensong at 6pm, followed by Festival Pulpit and a Q&A session.
