Rev Dr Alan Race,a Committee Member of the Progressive Christianity Network Britain, will give a lunchtime address “Honest to God: The Makings and Celebrations of a Midwife of Change”. Alan was ordained in the Anglican Church in 1976 and has worked in settings as varied as parish ministry, university chaplaincy, ordination training, and interfaith education.
