The Hook Lecture stimulates debate around an issue of faith in the context of Leeds.
The event is organised jointly by Leeds Church Institute, Leeds Minster and School of Philosophy, Religion and the History of Science at the University of Leeds. With the UK hosting the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow in November 2021, we would like to offer our annual Hook Lecture on theology and the environment.
The lecture usually takes place in Leeds Minster and we hope by the autumn to be able to have the event in person.
