with Bishop Alastair Redfern
In this session, Alastair Redfern will lead a discussion about modern slavery: a growing phenomenon in villages, towns and cities. Together we’ll explore what is happening and why, and consider the particular contribution Christians can make in combating this brutal exploitation.
Modern slavery is growing: in villages and towns, as well as cities. We will explore what is happening, why, and how Christians have a particular and precious contribution to make in combating this brutal exploitation of so many of our sisters and brothers.
Alastair Redfern is chair of the Clewer Initiative (the Church of England’s response to modern slavery), a co-founder of the Global Sustainability Network, and a trustee of the AMAR Foundation (an award-winning charity working in the Middle East, helping vulnerable communities to rebuild their lives when faced by conflict). From 2005-2018 he was Bishop of Derby.
Holy Ground takes place in the nave of Exeter Cathedral. It is an exciting opportunity to explore, question and express Christian spirituality and values in a beautiful and ancient setting.
All are welcome at Holy Ground, where we enjoy combining creative approaches to spirituality with stimulating and open-minded discussions about Christianity and its contexts, as well as creating spaces for quiet reflection upon God, ourselves and the world.
