Fruitfulness on the Frontline: Law – Being a Mouthpiece for Truth and Justice

Taylor Selwyn Room, Learning Centre

19th Jun 2017 7.30pm - 19th Jun 2017 9.30pm Event Type: Lecture

A new community building programme for professional people.

“The truth sets people free.  Christ sets people free.  So we stick up for truth and we stick up for justice – righteous ways of living as well as righteous law, fair dealings as well as fair judgment”

What unfairness, injustice or falsehoods do you see on your frontline?  As a barrister with a particular focus on financial crime Rachel Naylor and Eleanor Purkiss brings their experience as barristers to discuss the issues raised in this chapter of Fruitfulness on the Frontline.  Learning how to identify and then speak out against injustice in our workplaces and other areas of life is essential if we are to fulfil our calling as agents of transformation.

Part of a series of lectures which ends on 26 June.

On 6 March 2017 The Executive Director of the London Institute of Contemporary Christianity, Mark Greene, gave a lecture to launch a new Hampshire wide community building programme for professional people, called Fruitfulness on the Frontline. The aim of Fruitfulness on the Frontline is to develop and resource communities of professionals who connect their discipleship as Christians with the particular markets and industries in which they work. The workplace is often the ‘frontline’ of faith, where our Christian values are sometimes challenged by the pressures of survival in the marketplace. Speakers in the series represent just a few industries/market sectors, however anyone who works in any market sector will be inspired by this series of gatherings, because the principles of applying Christian faith remain the same.

Rachel Naylor defends and prosecutes in the full range of criminal work, with a particular focus on financial crime in the context of large, multi-handed cases. She also has experience of public inquiries.
