FREE heritage talk at Bow Church this Thurs 28 November (19.30)

This Thursday 28th November, Professor Arthur Burns will be giving a free talk at Bow Church entitled: "The urban challenge: life for clergy in Hanoverian and Victorian London"

By the end of the nineteenth century it was a common assumption that a clergyman’s task was far harder in the town than the countryside. But did earlier London clergymen share this view? What kind of clergymen took on the challenge of the metropolis? This illustrated lecture explores the sometimes surprising story of how an urban clergy emerged from an urbane one.

Entry is FREE, though booking is strongly advised.  Tickets are available via Bow Church's Eventbrite site: 

All welcome!
