A prominent Irish church leader is visiting Wisbech next month as part of National Interfaith Week.

Revd Dr Inderjit Bhogal, a prominent Methodist and until earlier this year the leader of the Corrymeela Community in Northern Ireland, will be the guest of the Wisbech Interfaith Forum.

Mr Bhogal will give a talk entitled ‘Our Peace, our world. Think global, act local’ at Trinity Methodist Church in Wisbech at 7.30pm on Thursday November 20. There will also be a poem reading from Fenland Poet Laureate 2014 Poppy Kleiser.

The following day, he will lead an assembly at the Thomas Clarkson Academy, which is putting on a Quaker First World War exhibition from November 17-20.

The Corrymeela Community is a Christian community whose objective is the promotion of reconciliation and peace-building through the healing of social, religious, and political divisions in Northern Ireland.
