The Hook Lecture hopes to stimulate debate around the issue of faith in the context of Leeds.

The event is organised jointly by Leeds Church Institute, Leeds Minster and the University of Leeds, School of Philosophy, Religion and the History of Science. 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 to encourage discussions post COP26.

The event will be taking place at Leeds Minster and will be live streamed on Facebook @LCILeeds
