“Faith and Belief in New Zealand: What Kiwis Think and Why”
Chris Clarke (Praxis Visiting Scholar Oxford University)
Thursday 28 March (5:30 pm Refreshments • 6:00 pm Lecture)
The St. John’s Centre (Corner of Willis & Dixon – Wellington CBD)
Every census asks Kiwis to indicate their religious affiliation. Recent results indicate a drastic decline in faith and belief. But numbers don’t tell the full story. They don’t answer why people are losing their faith and leaving behind their religion. Join us for a public lecture, as Chris Clarke “gets behind the numbers,” answers the why question, and leads a discussion about how faith leaders and religious communities can respond to these trends.
