In this Webinar we interview Robert Wickham the Bishop of Edmonton about Faith in the Community.

Today religion is playing a more important part in many people’s lives than it did a decade or so ago even though the number attending traditional churches has declined.

Why is this and how important is it that faith organisations engage with communities not to just to increase their numbers but because they want to confront some pressing social problems.

Bishop Rob is passionate about civil society playing a major part in tackling the issues of knife crime, youth violence, school exclusions and poverty. Bishop Rob studied at the university of Durham, where he studied geography, especially urban regeneration, and perceptual geography.

He has worked in some Parishes before becoming a Bishop that were some of the most deprived in the UK and has been involved in the food bank and credit union movement.

What then does religion play in a society that faces huge social and economic problems. This is what we will discuss with Bishop Rob.
