    Trumpism, Brexit, Neo-liberalism, the Gospel and the General Election

    11:15 amSt Peter's on Willis, Wellington

    A seminar led by Bishop Richard Randerson

    We live in troubled times with growing numbers in Western society marginalised and alienated, through poverty, homelessness and related causes. This seminar examines the socio-economic realities for New Zealand and offers a critique of the neo-liberal values which underpin them. By contrast, Gospel values of mutuality and well-being raise critical questions about choices for all Kiwis in the September election.

    This seminar is led by Richard Randerson, a retired Anglican bishop, now living in Wellington, whose 50 years in ministry have focused on the church’s engagement with wider society, addressing issues of poverty and justice, ethics in the public square, and contemporary issues of theology and inter-faith. This seminar is available on request in other parishes or groups - email Richard or phone him on 04 976 6050 for more information.
