Monday 1st November, 7:00 pm
LICC (London Institute for Contemporary Christianity)
Undoing Inequality Through Business:
How business can make the world a fairer place
In the Bible, ‘jubilee’ points us to the God-given practice of undoing inequality. People got a fresh start, and the society of God’s chosen people was realigned with the kingdom of heaven. How can we model that vision in the 21st-Century UK and beyond? And in a global society that often seems dominated by market forces, what role can businesses play in creating a fairer world?
Global entrepreneur and impact investor Dato Kim Tan will share how businesses can act for social justice – including through wealth creation and distribution, cancellation of debt, people-focused investment practice, and stewarding the environment.
Cost: £5 donation

Building on the Rock: Christians in Construction
Glorifying God on the building site
As Christians in construction, what does it mean for our work to be distinctive and transformative? How can we showcase Christ – in what we do and say at work, and in our work itself?
Construction work mirrors the character of the creator God. When we build, we’re imitating our loving heavenly Father – the one who laid the foundations of the Earth. And we can find fulfilment and joy in the knowledge that God cares deeply about what we’re doing.
If you’re in construction or a similar sector, join us online as we explore:
Stories of God at work on the building site
Projects that have made a real difference for Christ
How to live fruitfully as a disciple at work
Cost: £5 donation

Building a Better Future : Re-imagining the Social Contract
As the country, and world, looks to rebuild from the impacts of Covid-19, many of us are asking the question what building back better than before might look like and how will we re-imagine a society that meets our needs whilst addressing the injustices that have been made clear during the past months.
The Building a Better World conference will explore what role our leadership, faith and influence hold as we navigate these challenges. You will be inspired, resourced and informed how to re-imagine the social contract and become a transformational leader.
Cost: £12.50 – £35
