About the series 

With the UK voting to leave the European Union and with increasing division, xenophobia, and confusion over future national and international relationships, the St Martin-in-the-Fields Autumn Lecture Series examines the crucial question: Who is my Neighbour?

What does the Christian commandment to love one’s neighbour as oneself actually mean for us today. Lectures by renowned theologians and practitioners will reflect on this subject in relation to issues of ecology, immigration, fear and discrimination, the present political climate both in UK, Europe and the USA. We also contemplate how that the lives of our poorest neighbours may in fact be God’s gift to us as a church and as a nation.

About the speaker

Sarah Teather is Director of Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) UK. She joined the JRS UK team after a short contract with the JRS International office that took her all over the world visiting JRS projects in East Africa, the Middle East and many of the recent pressure points in Europe. Prior to joining JRS, Sarah was a Member of Parliament in London for 12 years, including serving as Minister of State for Children and Families. She also chaired two crossparty inquiries, one on support for children in the asylum system and another high-profile inquiry into the uses of immigration detention.
