Online - Faith in Business - Creating Sustainable Businesses
Global warming and a climate crisis. Pollution and waste. Ending poverty and ensuring human rights. These are some of the most serious issues facing humanity today - and for Christians we know this is a responsibility God has placed on us since creation (Genesis 2:15).

Continuing our series helping Christians to live and work with purpose, sustainability expert Duncan Gray will help us explore this crucial area, considering questions such as:
Is an ethical business approach always a sustainable business approach?
Can a purpose-led business be unsustainable?
Do Christians have a distinctive approach to creating more sustainable businesses?

Duncan will help us understand these questions biblically and practically, equipping us to build sustainable businesses that care for God's creation.

Online - Undoing Inequality Through Business
How business can make the world a fairer place?

In the Bible, ‘jubilee’ points us to the God-given practice of undoing inequality. For Old Testament Israel, it meant slaves were freed, prisoners were released, and debts were cancelled every seven years. People got a fresh start, and the society of God’s chosen people was realigned with the kingdom of heaven.

How can we model that vision in the 21st-Century UK and beyond? And in a global society that often seems dominated by market forces, what role can businesses play in creating a fairer world?
