Thank you to those who have already registered for the T4CG Conference - we look forward to seeing you in September and will be in touch with you soon.
We’ve been able to release extra capacity following the demand for last minute registrations and are now extending the registration deadline for the time being. Residential places are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis - so if you would like to attend the conference as a residential delegate you will need to register as soon as possible.
We wanted to share with you some thoughts from some of the delegates attending (see below).
If you can't join us in person do keep an eye on our website and follow us on Twitter @T4CG. You'll find helpful reading lists and links to downloads, opinion pieces and more at www.togetherforthecommongood.co.uk
A national initiative, inspired by the Sheppard Worlock years, exploring how different Christian traditions and other faith communities can work better together for social justice.
Looking forward to the T4CG Conference...
"I'm looking forward to being part of a group of people with a commitment to find innovative strategies to support the flourishing of the Common Good in society"
Danny Curtin, Founder of Million Minutes and former YCW National President, currently a consultant alongside many UK charities
“I'm looking forward to the conference and hoping that Together for the Common Good will enable churches to stand together to call for justice as well as charity.”
Paul Morrison, Policy Advisor, The Joint Public Issues Team: Baptist, Methodist and United Reformed Churches working together
"I'm looking forward to meeting the speakers and people attending the Together for the Common Good Conference and hope that it will enable me to enrich my faith, and to critique and develop my own practice at work."
Helen O'Brien, Chief Executive, CSAN (Caritas Social Action Network), the social action arm of the Catholic Church in England and Wales
"I am looking forward to sharing with others on effective strategies to enable church-based social action, grounded in reflection on experience and our conversations with scripture, which challenge the churches and wider society to work for the common good".
Father Steven Saxby, Parish Priest, St Barnabas, Walthamstow, and Executive Officer, London Churches Group on Social Action
"This conference interests me very much. The common good is something which most faiths share because we all believe in the dignity of the human person. I’m looking forward to meeting with others to see how we can best work together for the good of all our brothers and sisters, not just those close to us, but everybody."
Bishop William Kenney, Roman Catholic Auxiliary Bishop of Birmingham
"I have been involved in setting up the Cambridge Conversations initiative to explore the Common Good through debate, and feel sure that ideas and contacts from T4CG will enhance our thinking as we plan our fifth event."
Jenny Kartupelis MBE
