They are currently on a national tour sharing their vision for social justice, in conjunction with children’s charity Compassion.

The Bishop of Salisbury, Nicholas Holtam, said, “The calibre of the speakers is a real coup for St Paul’s and is an opportunity for us as a Diocese to learn from leaders in their fields. Compassion is an essential quality for Christians to show others, and Compassion the organisation does much-needed work on behalf of children worldwide.”

The Rector of St Paul’s, Revd Andrew Cullis, said, “We’re looking forward to an extraordinary evening, with top-quality worship music and one of the most inspiring and powerful speakers of our time. We expect to be entertained, challenged and changed!”
