Join us for a Choral Evening Prayer, followed by our Thursday Conversation when our guest speaker will be Nicky Morgan MP Secretary of State for Education. She will be leading a discussion on ‘The role of Education in building cohesive communities’.
The Thursday conversations are a series of monthly conversations that encourage us to engage with important issues that impact on all our lives. In an informal, relaxed atmosphere, we discuss and debate with influential figures in fields such as politics, law, social justice and human rights.
Conversations are facilitated by the Revd Rose Hudson-Wilkin, Priest-in-Charge at St Mary-at-Hill Church and Chaplain to the Speaker of the House of Commons.
Nicky Morgan is the Member of Parliament for Loughborough, and the Secretary of State for Education and Minister for Women & Equalities.
Nicky was elected to serve Loughborough for the Conservatives in the 2010 General Election, and increased her majority in the seat in the 2015 Election.
She was born in 1972 and grew up in Surrey, before studying law at Oxford University. She worked as a solicitor specialising in corporate law, advising a range of private and public companies from 1994-2010. In the last Parliament, Nicky served as the Financial Secretary and Economic Secretary to the Treasury, an Assistant Whip, the Parliamentary Private Secretary to David Willetts, at the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills, and she was a member of the BIS Select Committee.
Nicky’s interests in Parliament include education, mental health, transport and small businesses.
Nicky lives in Loughborough with husband Jonathan and they have one son.
These informal evening conversations regularly prove to be informative, interesting, and social gatherings.
The event is free, but donations to the church are very gratefully accepted to help ensure that we keep these and other community events appearing in your diary!
