The One People Oration

Date Time Location Price
Monday, 21st October 2019 6:30pm - 7:45pm The Abbey Free, booking required

The Very Reverend Dr John Hall gives this year’s One People Oration, Faith at the Heart of Nations? Reflections on the future of church and state.

The One People Oration is a lecture given each year at Westminster Abbey. The intention of the series is to make people 'think not only of all Christian people but of all mankind'.

The orations commenced in 1966, the 900th anniversary year of the consecration and dedication of Edward the Confessor's original church. The phrase ‘One People’ was coined by Edward Carpenter (then Archdeacon, later Dean of Westminster) in 1965-1966.

This year's Oration is given by the Very Reverend Dr John Hall, and is chaired by the Reverend Jane Sinclair, Canon of Westminster and Rector of St Margaret's Church. Dr Hall is the 38th Dean of Westminster and is responsible for the Abbey’s mission and ministry.

Part of Art, Imagination and Public Service, Westminster Abbey Institute's 2019 autumn programme.
