My neighbour the refugee with Sarah Teather

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.


Sarah Teather is Director of Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) UK.

Prior to joining JRS, Sarah was a Member of Parliament in London for 12 years, including serving as Minister of State for Children and Families. She also chaired two crossparty inquiries, one on support for children in the asylum system and another high-profile inquiry into the uses of immigration detention.
