‘Facing the Fears of Unemployment: Christian Hope for Working Life’

Dr Helen Cameron

In her talk on 11 October 2021, Dr Helen Cameron reflected on our times of great insecurity, with people fearing unemployment as the furlough scheme comes to an end and employers rebuild their businesses after the restrictions end. Against this context, Helen considered how the church can be a community of hope.
