The Bishop of London’s Faith and Mental Health Lecture

1st April 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Free – £20

The Bishop of London, the Rt Revd and Rt Hon Dame Sarah Mullally DBE, is not only one of the most senior Bishops in the Church of England but former Chief nursing officer for England. As such, the Bishop is uniquely placed to offer important insights and vision for the interplay between faith and health for Christians, the church and for the communities they seek to serve.

In this lecture Bishop Sarah will explore how we can lower the barriers to honesty in talking about mental health. Addressing questions of vulnerability and shame she will ask what cultural shifts are necessary if those who are struggling are to find a voice. Can we be liberated from the fear of judgement and repercussions in the workplace and our communities? How can we make a step-change in normalizing conversations around mental wellbeing?

The Priory Church of St Bartholomew the Great is one of London’s oldest churches and indeed was established in the 12th century by a pilgrim who wished to give thanks for being healed. It continues to be linked to the hospital of St Bart’s today, and is a fantastic venue in which to ask questions regarding the links between faith and health, and how the church expresses a healing ministry in the complexities of modern life.
