December Update from St Paul’s Institute

Jay Owen Reforming Global Finance

Dear Friends,

I hope that you are all having a fruitful and peaceful Advent.  A few updates today from St Paul’s Institute for your interest during this Advent and Christmas period, and we look forward to being in touch again in the new year with our big plans for 2014.  Thank you to all of those who have attended recent events, the level of dialogue and conversation has noticeably raised in energy and we are greatly encouraged by your continued involvement in and contribution to our work.

Our recent event with the Christian Muslim Forum on ‘Faith in Finance’ was a great success, and we have a full recording of that event available to view online here.  We were also pleased to welcome almost 50 clergy to our recent clergy learning day, an aspect of our work that we will be looking to grow over the coming years.


We also have three new articles on our website that cover topics relevant in recent weeks:

Making Finance Fair – Julian Bond, Christian Muslim Forum

Could there be a Finance Sector with Convictions? – Bishop Peter Selby

Why Expect Charities to be Different? – Bishop Peter Selby

Finally we have released details of our first event for 2014, a lecture and Q&A with author Felix Martin on the topic of his recently published book ‘Money: The Unauthorised Biography’.  Full details of this event, to be held on 5th February, are available on our website here.  Do book your place early to avoid disappointment, as our events are increasingly booking out!

Thank you for your continued support, and may you all have a very merry Christmas when it comes!

Kind regards,

Robert Gordon
