On 22nd November 2014 we held a conference in Cambridge, with Rowan Williams as our keynote speaker. We looked back on one hundred years since the founding of FoR at a similar conference in Cambridge, and looking forward to what the future of FoR may hold.

Finally on 17th January 2015 we had a thanksgiving service at the University Church of St Mary the Virgin, Oxford. It was a wonderful way to wrap up the celebrations, right in the centre of the FoR’s current home, Oxford. With music from the Sea Green Singers and sermon by David Walker, bishop of Manchester.
