About the lecture
Every census asks Kiwis to indicate their religious affiliation. Recent results indicate a drastic decline in faith and belief. But numbers don’t tell the full story. They don’t answer why people are losing their faith and leaving behind their religion. Join us for a public lecture, as Chris Clarke (Oxford University Praxis visiting Scholar and former Director of World Vision) “gets behind the numbers,” answers the why question, and leads a discussion about how faith leaders and religious communities can respond to these trends.
