February 2018  Round Table

Thursday 15th February ..  At Noon, Round Table

in the Pilgrim Centre, Dale Street


Is it time for Church disestablishment?




A 10 minute introduction by our chairperson Mark Michaels starting at 12:00 through to 13:15 pm. A lively discussion. Bishops in the legislature by right? Monarch required to defend the Church? A majority in the nation claim no faith and almost as many people who are observant within some faith are not Church of England or Scotland. Church in Wales is already disestablished! Mark is a Monarchist, an advocate of an appointed non-party political upper house and a Progressive Jew. As always the subject may change in light of current events at the time.






















We will provide drinks.  If you wish, bring your own lunch to eat as we go.


12.00 – 1.30 pm in Pilgrim Centre, Dale Street, Craven Arms.
