On the feast of St Stephen, I was on BBC Radio 4s ‘Beyond Belief’ debating consumerism. It was great to be able to be involved in such a lively conversation and to think about religious identity and how it is impacted by consumer culture as well as consider what we real mean by that particular ‘ism’. While two guests joined us from another studio, it was really good to meet Eve Poole a manager of the think tank Theos.

If you would like to be supported in that then please get in touch with us and let us know what you are confident to speak on, why you’re the right person to do it, and what media experience you might have. We’re happy to offer preparation and coaching.
As the picture above suggests – we believe everyone has something important to say – in the Kingdom of God, we need to hear the voices not usually heard.
