The third Godtalk conference was held in St Martins House on Thursday 30th October 2014.  Following the first two conferences, which examined language and responses concerning God and contemporary society, and issues relating to the economy and possible theological responses, Godtalk 3 addressed the pressing issue of climate change and the impact of the same upon the future of our planet and life.
