    I am a Quaker and the Labour Party PPC for Bromley and Chislehurst.

    I’d like to attend your meeting on 17 March – in a personal capacity: I have particular experience in ecumenical and interfaith affairs – especially as they relate to the promotion of the key policy for peace: income/economic equality.

    For all, the best, equally

    • Hi John

      Thanks for your reply. I have passed it on to our Secretary who will contact you with registration details for the meeting.

      I am currently requesting personal contributions from people of different faiths on the subject of mutual respect between religions – for example how in your view Quakerism would support such respect. If you are moved to write an article I would be very happy to receive it. The suggested length is between 300 and 1000 words.

      With best regards
      Mike Garside
