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 - Rage Against the Machine - Discipleship in the digital age
One thing has become crystal clear over the last year: we’re incredibly dependent on technology. With family chats on Zoom, working from home, and church online, our screen time has gone through the roof, and we’ve relied on tech to connect us to the outside world.
But how often do we stop to think about how the technology we use every day is forming us? Is it possible that our technology is subtly teaching us what’s good, what’s evil, and what it means to be human? As the digital world grows in influence, it’s vital to understand how it serves – and violates – God’s purposes for creation. Because as Christians, we all have a duty to use our technology in a way that brings healing to ourselves and our communities – and communicates the gospel to our virtual neighbours in a meaningful way.
Join us for an evening of lively discussion on this crucial topic – and discover together what it looks like to make a difference for Christ in this tech-dominated age.
Online - Workplace Habits for Better Decisions
How can I make better decisions at work?

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?
Online - Building on the Rock: Christians in Construction
Glorifying God on the building site
As Christians in construction, what does it mean for our work to be distinctive and transformative? How can we showcase Christ – in what we do and say at work, and in our work itself?
Construction work mirrors the character of the creator God. When we build, we’re imitating our loving heavenly Father – the one who laid the foundations of the Earth. And we can find fulfilment and joy in the knowledge that God cares deeply about what we’re doing.
