After the ravages of the pandemic, it’s time for church and society to learn to dream again. In a world of so much inequality, where is the prophetic voice of the Church and what is the relevance of Christ for today? Drawing on Martin Luther King Jr’s famous words, we have invited the Archbishop of York to open our lecture series by sharing his dream.

We will be taking a selection of questions for our Q&A, if you would like to ask a question, please send an email to or text 07552 024 024.
