About this Event

‘Learning what enough looks like. How Christian and faith traditions might speak to the big ecological and economic challenges of a time.’

The Institute for Social Justice was launched in 2020 to underpin York St John University’s mission to ‘stand up for social justice.’ It does so through developing collaborative research and practice that seeks to address some of the inequalities and injustices facing society today.

In 2021 the Archbishop of York, Stephen Cottrell, became patron of the Institute for Social Justice. This patronage recognises our shared values and objectives as we work together to combat inequalities and actively strive for ever greater social justice. As part of his patronage, the Archbishop will deliver an annual lecture of which this is the first.

Stephen Cottrell is the 98th Archbishop of York.

He has previously served as the Bishop of Chelmsford, Bishop of Reading, Canon Pastor at Peterborough Cathedral and Diocesan Missioner for the Diocese of Wakefield. He served in parishes in South London and Chichester.

He is a member of the Church of England’s Committee for Minority Ethnic Concerns, and Chair of Church Army, an Anglican society for evangelism and social outreach. He is a member of the House of Lords.

He is a well-known writer and speaker on evangelism, spirituality and catechesis.

His latest book, Dear England, is published in March and addresses issues about how the Christian faith can shape the life of our nation.

He is married to Rebecca who is a potter, and they have three sons and one grandson.
