There will be refreshments at 5pm and the Lecture is to start at 5.30pm. There is no charge, and the lecture is open to all, whether members of the Society or not, but it is necessary to book in advance.
In order to book, consult the Ecclesiastical Law Society website and go to its Events page, or contact Bishop Colin at cobdleeds [at] btinternet.com.
