William Temple Foundation Lecture

Wednesday 28th January 2015

William Temple Foundation is delighted to present its inaugural annual lecture, to be delivered by the Most Reverend & Right Honourable Dr. John Sentamu, Archbishop of York.


This event is the first of its kind for the Foundation, yet it represents a continuation of its work supporting important voices to reach wider audiences. The lecture will be held at Leeds Civic Hall on Wednesday 18th March at 5.30pm. All are welcome to attend this free public event.

Following the recent publication of 'On Rock Or Sand' the Archbishop of York will share insights into how we might build firm foundations for Britain’s future. His lecture is titled, ‘Air, Light, Land and Water: Reclaiming public assets for the common profit’ 

Professor Chris Baker, Director of William Temple Foundation said, ‘We are extremely pleased that Archbishop Sentamu will deliver our inaugural annual lecture. Rooted in the Temple tradition, Archbishop Sentamu’s concern for inequality and issues of poverty resonates well beyond Anglican circles. In the run-up to the general election, the Church offers an important voice on these issues. As such, we invite those who share similar concerns, from all faiths, as well as those from secular backgrounds, to come and hear the Archbishop’s address.’
