You can read more about the webinar and how to attend in the flyer below or by going to the Ripon City of Sanctuary website.
Although the poster targets the meeting at ‘Clergy and lay leaders’, the webpage invites ‘You, if you’re a leader, staff member or layperson in your faith community’ and Revd Rachel encourages anyone who feels strongly about this issue to attend with her blessing.Faith-leaders-webinar-Asylum-bill
