Engaging in public life - Bristol
@Woodlands Church Belgrave Road Bristol BS8 2AA
The Influence Tour 2.0. “The difference between just making noise and having influence is relationships”. Christians in Politics exists to inspire and equip Christians from across denominations and the political spectrum to respond to God’s call to engage in public life. We’re calling Christians not to simply shout from a distance but rather to work to build meaningful relationships with those whom we will not necessarily agree with on everything. In our increasingly fractured political system and society, the need has never been greater to call Christians into brave relationships, putting aside differences to work together for the common good and to see Kingdom values represented in the public sphere.

After Strangeways: The past, present and future of prisons - London
@Kings College, Strand Campus, Strand, London, WC2R 2LS
Thirty years on, the dysfunctions and problems of the prison system that gave rise to the Strangeways protest are as pressing as ever. Indeed some would argue they are worse. Many prisons across Britain appear locked in a terminal spiral of decline and decay. The conference will take stock of the present state of prisons across the UK, and what current conditions say about British society and the way it treats some of the most vulnerable and marginalised groups.
The conference will also look forward, at the potential futures of prisons. Do prisons protect prisoners and the wider society? If not, do we need to think differently about the meaning of protection and safety in the twenty-first century?Are prisons eternal and immutable institutions, destined forever to be a feature of British society? Is it possible to think about different futures, including ones where far fewer people are imprisoned, or where prisons are no longer a mainstay of our response to crime?
