God, Your Work, & the Environmental Crisis - London
@LICC, St Peter’s Vere St, London W1G 0DQ
Our environment currently faces profound threats. Every kind of company and organisation will need to be involved in transforming our economy and society for a sustainable future. As workers, each of us is an integral part of a corporation or organisation that can hurt or help that goal. But do we have the conviction and influence to change things – and could it really work? Can our faith spur us on to the task? Where can we even begin to change our complicated systems?

Growing in Leadership: An Audience with Jody Jonsson - London
@LICC, St Peter’s Vere St, London W1G 0DQ
What does it take to grow into a long-haul leader in the challenging contemporary finance sector, or any sector for that matter? What difference does it make to be a woman in leadership, and a person of faith at that? Jody Jonsson chose investment because she loved the intellectual challenge, the drama of the market, and the human psychology at play. And she chose that sector precisely because the pace and content seemed sustainable for a career. During 30 years in finance, there have been counter-cultural decisions along the way about work, about family, and about what really matters in life. She and her family have often taken roads less travelled. She’s seen how God has used challenging circumstances to make her a more effective leader, better able to model Christian vulnerability and transparency, and better able to serve her clients and colleagues.

The Biblical Call for a Renewed Finance Industry - London
@LICC, St Peter’s Vere St, London W1G 0DQ
How can Christians in finance be agents for justice in our industry and the global marketplace? How might we identify injustice and propose creative, leading solutions rooted in Biblical thought? As Christians we’re called to exercise good government as part of our creation mandate. And as people who often set business and investment strategy, workers in the finance sector can exercise that good governance over wide areas of economic activity. With so much power and resource, how can we reflect God’s image and respect human dignity? How can we fulfil our responsibility to shareholders while making provision for the poor, echoing God’s laws for Israel, as Boaz did in the book of Ruth? In an industry known for fierce competition and ambitious goals, what does the meekness Jesus talks about in the Beatitudes look like? What would financial power with restraint look like? How do we wield power in a way that serves others?

Thrive Conference - Aberdeen
@King's Community Church Exhibition Avenue Bridge of Don Aberdeen AB23 8BL
This conference has been born out of a desire to see God move in the places and people we move amongst each and every day, many of whom would never enter a church building. Our aim is to see Christians live out the gospel in and through their workplace - impacting themselves, their work and our city. Thus, the theme of the conference is how we can be an influence and make an impact in the workplace.
