EU referendum debate in London on 11 May by T4CG

Together for the Common Good is hosting an EU referendum debate event at 7:30 pm on 11th May at St Michael’s Cornhill, City of London:

“A Balance of Interests: Britain, the EU and the Common Good”

What is the EU for? What is our vision of Britain in the modern world?

The EU Referendum decision is widely portrayed as about the ‘British national interest’, which it certainly is. But in the Christian tradition, politics is about promoting ‘the common good’, something much wider than the interests of one nation.

What is ‘the national interest’ anyway?

At this critical watershed moment we invite you to join us for this special debate and for drinks afterwards, to consider this balance of interests – what is good for Britain with what is good for Europe.

Moderator: Eliza Filby – Writer, historical commentator and broadcaster.

Speakers:

  • Dr Jonathan Chaplin – Political Theologian, Director, Kirby Laing Institute of Christian Ethics
  • The Rt Hon Frank Field MP – Labour MP for Birkenhead
  • Caroline MacFarland – Director of CoVi (Common Vision)

Booking essential. Please bring your ticket with you to claim your free drink. Register on Eventbrite for this free event.
