A talk entitled ‘Christianity and the Environment’ will be given by former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, on Friday, October 2

Rowan Williams, Anglican academic, theologian and The Rt Revd and Rt Hon The Lord Williams of Oystermouth, will be speaking on climate change and environmental crisis as part of a new Soil and Soul Festival.

The talk comes in the wake of the publication of the encyclical from Pope Francis, which is addressed to every person on the planet and discusses the theme of care of our common home.

In it, Pope Francis calls for an ecological conversion, to care for our world and to praise God for the gifts of creation.

Rowan Williams has spoken out about this theme in the past, and will be further discussing climate change and the environment at the talk, which will be held at 7pm at Firle Place in Lewes.

Tickets are £10, and can be booked at www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/heart-and-soil-tickets-17961528415.
