Who is my neighbour? The Ethics of Global Relationships with Rowan Williams

With the UK voting to leave the European Union and with increasing division, With increasing division in the UK, renowned theologians and and practitioners examine the crucial question: Who is my neighbour?


With the UK voting to leave the European Union and with increasing division, xenophobia, and confusion over future national and international relationships, the St Martin-in-the-Fields Autumn Lecture Series examines the crucial question: Who is my Neighbour?

What does the Christian commandment to love one’s neighbour as oneself actually mean for us today. Lectures by renowned theologians and practitioners will reflect on this subject in relation to issues of ecology, immigration, fear and discrimination, the present political climate both in UK, Europe and the USA. We also contemplate how that the lives of our poorest neighbours may in fact be God’s gift to us as a church and as a nation.

Entry is free and open to all.

Speaker -

Rowan Williams has been Master at Magdalene College Cambridge since January 2013. World-renowned as a theologian, writer, teacher and thinker, and for his deep wisdom, spiritual leadership and grace, he became Bishop of Monmouth, and, from 2000, Archbishop of Wales. He was Archbishop of Canterbury from 2002-2012. Dr Williams is a noted poet. Besides Welsh, he speaks or reads nine other languages. He has published studies of Arius, Teresa of Avila, Sergei Bulgakov and Fyodor Dostoyevsky, together with writings and lectures on a wide range of theological, historical and political themes. We are deeply honoured that he has agreed to give the first lecture in this Autumn Series.
