PCN Britain’s AGM is cancelled
It is with great regret that we have decided to cancel the AGM and film launch.
PCN BRITAIN AND THE CORONAVIRUS
As with all other organisations, the trustees of PCN Britain have discussed the dangers posed by the Coronavirus to those who travel on public transport and meet with others in small or larger gatherings. We are aware that many of our members are aged over 70 and that some do have underlying health issues. Our first concern is for the wellbeing of all our members and it is therefore with a heavy heart that we have decided to cancel the AGM and the Film Launch, due to take place in London on March 21st, when we are told that the virus will be reaching its peak in the UK. We are sorry for the inconvenience caused and we realise that many people, like myself, will have paid for travel in advance or even booked accommodation.
The AGM will be rescheduled for a time when the danger of contracting this disease is past. We are also considering whether or not the York conference on April 25th should go ahead and we will be making a decision about this in the coming days.
The films are nearing completion and we will announce details of how they can be accessed and the resources available to go with them in the coming weeks. We still hope to have a number of local launches when it is safe to do so.
In the meantime, and in the hope of a return to normality by the autumn, we are looking forward to what will be a busy schedule! On Saturday October 10th we are to hold our final Marcus Borg memorial conference, at the Church in Carrs Lane, Birmingham, when we are thrilled to announce that the Executive Director of the Progressive Christianity organisation in the USA, Revd Deshna Shine is our guest lecturer. We might then see an autumn packed with this, a science conference and an AGM! We will keep members informed of all these developments.
