As he approaches the end of his full-time parochial ministry your Vicar has, with customary self-indulgence, organised a series of conversations in church with some of the marvelous people he has come to know over the last 40 years, people prominent in public life.
They will talk about their work, their values and convictions. It’s deliberately not ostensibly a religious exercise – many of our guests would hesitate to wear that label – but I am convinced that their stories and work will intersect with our faith and give us much to think about in our own story, and how we live out our lives.
Each session will be held in church, starting with a light supper at 7.30
