Fruitfulness on the Frontline: Politics – Moulding Culture

Taylor Selwyn Room, Learning Centre

12th Jun 2017 7.30pm - 12th Jun 2017 9.30pm Event Type: Festival

A new community building programme for professional people.

‚Äúthe primary shapers of any culture should first be a total commitment to loving God. And second, a total commitment to loving people created in God‚Äôs image ‚Äď a commitment, therefore, to seeking their best, seeking their blessing and flourishing‚ĶA nation interested only in the prosperity of its own people fails the test‚ÄĚ

In this lecture Gareth Wallace will explore, through a political lens, how we can seek to improve the culture of our workplace to make it more kingdom-like.  How can we ensure that even though some decisions made in the workplace may not be of benefit for all, our workplaces can adopt other patterns of behaviour and initiatives that seek to show a commitment to loving people created in God’s image.

Part of a series of lectures which continues on 19 and 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 ‚Äėfrontline‚Äô 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.

Gareth Wallace is Executive Director of the Conservative Christian Fellowship, which seeks to build Christian relationships between the Christian world and the world of politics. Prior to leading the CCF, Gareth worked mainly in the Christian charity sector, lobbying on matters concerning social engagement, religious liberty and poverty alleviation. His previous role was Policy Advisor for the Salvation Army. He has also worked for the Evangelical Alliance, the Oasis Trust and Faithworks. Gareth recently served as Deputy Chair (Political) for Vauxhall Constituency Conservative Association. He attends St Mark's Battersea Rise, and was a Night Pastor in Clapham Junction. He will be joining us with some colleagues who are involved in local and national AND politics.
