Forum 2022: Our speakers

Find out who will be presenting at the event on 14 to 16 March

It’s just two months until the CTE Forum 2022 – the broadest ecumenical gathering in the country – where people from our Member Churches will mingle with delegates from our Bodies in Association, Co-ordinating Groups, Intermediate Bodies and partner organisations. It will be a fantastic opportunity to meet and build relationships with a diverse gathering of Christians from all over England.

The theme of the whole event – taking place from 14 to 16 March – is Reconciling Hope: A broken church for a broken world. Delegates will hear from a line up of world-class speakers who will be reflecting on bringing the good news of Christ to a world turned upside down by the Covid pandemic. They will be tackling different aspects of reconciliation including:

  • Reconciling communities
  • Reconciling people with God
  • Reconciliation with the earth 

Three of CTE’s Presidents – Archbishop Justin Welby, Cardinal Vincent Nichols and Archbishop Nikitas – will be presenting.

Other keynote speakers include author and theologian, Professor Anthony Reddie from the University of Oxford on reconciling communities – being good news in fractured society and Canon Dr Ruth Valerio, Global Advocacy and Influencing Director for Tearfund, on reconciling people to planet earth: the task of being good news to a world in climate emergency.
