All welcome

This lecture is open to all and forms part of the inaugural week-long Summer Institute in Cambridge jointly organised by the Cambridge Centre for Christianity Worldwide, Theological education in the Anglican Communion and the Rose Castle Foundation.

During the week a global group of students, educators, researchers and others will be focussing on how the C-19 pandemic is impacting churches and their communities, locally and worldwide, and how they are responding.

The lecture promises to be a fascinating reflection from the University of Cambridge and Addenbrookes’ clinician and scientist at the forefront of the local, national and international effort to beat Covid-19.

Please do join us – come and be inspired and challenged after this very difficult time.
