The New Christianity


Peter Owen-Jones has been described as one of the most radical priests of his generation. In this talk he explores aspects of the changing religious identity and some of the more difficult areas that the Church of England will need to address in the coming years.

Peter Owen-Jones started life as a farm labourer before becoming a creative director in the advertising industry in the 80s. He was ordained in 1994 and has since then written several books and presented a handful of series for the BBC. In 2000 with the Diocese of Ely he founded the Arbory Trust which is to this date still the only Christian woodland burial site. He is also the co-founder of the Life Cairn Project; these are memorials to extinct species.
