Faith in Politics Podcast from the Joint Public Issues Team
This month, Bethan and Will interview Steve Chalke, founder of the Oasis Trust and leader of Oasis Church Waterloo. In a wide-ranging conversation, Steve gives insight into his motivations for founding the Oasis Trust, the importance he puts in leading a politically active, justice focused Church and the vital role he believes churches can play in helping the vulnerable.
The monthly musing comes from Methodist Minister Val Reid, in a reflection on the Good Samaritan that encourages us to rethink "who is our neighbour".
