Social Justice Lectures

Since the creation of the East Barnet Anglican Methodist Partnership we have held a number of Social Justice Lectures over the years on a wide range of Subjects and Guest Speakers.

In 2008 the EBAMP annual Social Justice lecture was inaugurated with a lecture on sex trafficking by the then chief constable of Gloucestershire, Dr Tim Brain.  One of the local newspapers changed its advertising policy shortly afterwards.

In 2009 Bev Thomas, from an independent black church blackground, spoke on diversity in a lecture called "A Vision of the Kingdom" while in 2010 the Irish poet Padraig O’Tuama lectured on "Poetic Justice and the Empty Space" he reflected in words and music on conflict from the point of view of someone working in Belfast. 

In 2011 the speaker was journalist and author Mark Vernon gave a lecture entitled "God Wars - exploring new developments in Science and Religion.

In 2013 the speaker was Eva Schloss (step-sister of Anne Frank) who gave a fascinating lecture under the title of "Have we learnt anything from Auschwitz?"
