(POSTPONED) Wes Talks – Sit Down Next To Me

Sit Down Next To Me: Does non-violent protest work?

(March 17th update: This event has now been postponed – new date tbc)

Please click here to read the latest information on The New Room’s response to the Coronavirus.

Wes Talks is a new series of talks inspired by the New Room’s founder John Wesley. He wrote and spoke about many issues in the 18th century which still resonate today.

This month we will be hearing from John Cooper, director of the Fellowship of Reconciliation and Maggie Moss, a participant in Extinction Rebellion actions about the question of non-violent protest.

After the talk there will be an opportunity for questions and discussion.

Wes Talks is a joint initiative run by the New Room and the Methodist Learning Network (South West)
