Faith, Finance and the ‘new normal’

Each major Faith is having to think about how to adjust to the so-called ‘new norms’ post-Covid-19. How are they doing this? How are they preparing for the financial challenges for people in their congregations and communities?

Join us online to hear speakers from across many faith groups talking about how their attitudes to the new normal and money worries are influenced by their faith teachings.
