Unpacking the persecution problem: an online talk by Bishop Philip

3rd March 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

UEA and the Keswick Hall Trust present an online talk on Christian persecution around the world by The Rt Revd Philip Mounstephen, The Bishop of Truro on March 3.
The event, which is free and open to all, will run between 7pm and 8.30pm.
According to the latest Open Doors World Watch List (2021) on Religious Persecution, over 340 million Christians around the world are facing high levels of persecution and discrimination for their faith. In 2018, Bishop Philip was tasked by the UK Government with investigating the persecution of Christians. His report has been fully accepted and is being implemented by the current government in support of freedom of religion and belief.
In this talk, Bishop Philip will discuss his investigation, the difficulties faced by believers in practicing their faith, and the need to unpack the persecution problem.
The talk is a key address in the UEA / Keswick Hall Trust lecture series and is introduced by Professor of Faith and Global Politics Lee Marsden. The talk will be followed by a Q&A.
