A CENTRE for Theology and Justice has been set up by Christian Aid, Church Action on Poverty, and Churches Together in Britain and Ireland (CTBI), in partnership with a fed­eration of theo­­­logical colleges in Manchester, at Luther King House.

Though the Centre was launched at Luther King House on 10 May, it will not occupy a building, but in­­stead will provide re­­­sources and news of its work on­­­line.

At the launch, an Argentinian Roman Catholic priest, Fr Augusto Zampini, a theological ad­­­viser to the RC charity CAFOD, delivered an in­­augural lecture in memory of the ecumenical ed­­­ucator David Good­bourn: “Is Justice Enough? A radical Christian re­­­sponse to the current human­itarian and ecological crisis”. The Bishop of Manchester, Dr David Walker, was in the chair.

The general secretary of CTBI, Bob Fyffe, said this week: “We are faced with many chal­leng­­ing issues that raise questions about justice, and how we under­stand and live out our faith in today’s world. The Centre for Theology and Justice will enable more Christians to reflect theologically on these issues, and make a public, prophetic voice heard.”
