Our weekly online briefings offer a unique opportunity to get behind the headlines, with a panel of speakers quizzed by our journalists

Briefing: Religion in the news – a review of 2023

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.
