NOTICES & Dates for your Diaries

Amnesty’s Write for Rights Campaign

This year, we will again be supporting the Amnesty International greeting card campaign. We will send messages of goodwill and solidarity to people whose rights have been abused, and those in danger for defending human rights. Cards will be available in the Chapel after morning services on 18 & 25 January, and 1 February, so that the congregation can send a message of hope to prisoners of conscience in many different parts of the world.
