Centre to launch with David Goodbourn Lecture

The Centre for Theology and Justice will be launched on Wednesday 10 May 2017 with the inaugural David Goodbourn Lecture ‘Is justice enough? A radical christian response to the current humanitarian and ecological crisis‘.

This will be presented by Father Augusto Zampini, an Argentine Roman Catholic priest, currently the theological adviser to the UK aid-development agency CAFOD and an Honorary Fellow at Durham University, Roehampton University and Stellenbosch University (South Africa). He has been lecturing on theology, Christian ethics and human rights since 2004.

David Walker, Bishop of Manchester, will be the chair for the event.

The launch takes place at Luther King House, Rusholme, Manchester M14 5JP.

The afternoon begins with a light afternoon tea and refreshments from 3.45pm. Augusto Zampini’s lecture will start at 4.30pm and finish at approximately 6pm.

It is a free but ticketed event and all tickets have now been allocated. We hope to post a video of the David Goodbourn Lecture after the event.
