Each talk will be a unique opportunity to hear about the excellent work being carried out in our community, and will offer all who attend the opportunity for discussion and reflection as we prepare for Easter.

The talks are free to attend, and will take place at 6.30pm in the Gibberd Room. Click on the links below for more information. We look forward to welcoming you.
