In this last Religion Media Centre briefing of 2023, we review the way news about religion made the headlines, including the disputes in the Church of England over safeguarding and same-sex blessings, the Rome synod to include more people in decision-making in the Catholic church, the way faith groups have come together to offer essentials in the cost of living crisis, the impact of the Israel/Hamas war on Jews and Muslims in this country, and the continuing conflict in Ukraine with refugees making a new life here supported by the church.
Our speakers are: RMC reporters Rosie Dawson, Catherine Pepinster and Tim Wyatt, with guests Bishop Kenneth Nowakowski, Ukrainian Catholic church, UK; Elizabeth Harris-Sawczenko former CEO Council of Christians and Jews; Kaleem Hussain FRSA, Honorary Fellow, Edward Cadbury Centre for the Public Understanding of Religion; Professor Helen King, member of Church of England General Synod; and Rabbi Jonathan Romain, minister of Maidenhead synagogue.
