Online - Diocese of London Housing Summit Part 1: Practical Parish Responses
The Archbishop of Canterbury's Commission on Housing 's recently published ‘Coming Home’ report has called the church to play its part in solving the housing crisis in our nation and bearing witness to the ‘home with God’ to which we are invited.

This is Part 1 of a 3 part series of "TED talk" style seminars as a response. They aim to help those of us in the Diocese of London imagine how we can get involved in meeting housing need, engage with our communities, and enable people to encounter the love of God in Jesus Christ.

How do we move beyond offering a bed for the night to offering homes to live in? The evening, hosted by Bishop Graham Tomlin, will start by looking at the theology of housing, underpinning our whole response as churches. Followed by stories of innovative strategies.
