Bath: Faith and Freedom

  • Manvers Street Baptist Church Manvers Street Bath, England, BA1 1JQ United Kingdom (map)

What can the church do about modern slavery?

The role of the police, other law enforcement agencies, and social services is clear when responding to modern slavery, but what should the role of the church be?

Churches and faith groups across the country are running food banks, sheltering the homeless, and welcoming people into their communities in hundreds of different ways. Some of those people will be victims or survivors of modern slavery who need love and support. How can we tap into the power of the local church and help it respond to this challenge?

Join us, to explore the answer these questions, and what the solutions could be for the Bath and North East Somerset area and beyond.

This is an ecumenical event organised and led by The Clewer Initiative, the national Church of England project working with dioceses to end modern slavery, and the Diocese of Bath and Wells Modern Slavery Team, with the support of Somerset Churches Together and the Justice and Peace Commission of the Diocese of Clifton.

There is no charge.
