With increasing repair bills and specialist craft skills and supportive congregations becoming a rare find, the long term sustainability of England's churches is becoming a growing concern. Join Simon Heffer for a lecture on how society could look after our churches in future, and ensure they are financially stable enough to prevent falling into disuse.
Simon is an English historian, journalist, author and political commentator. He has published several biographies and a series of books on the social history of Great Britain from the mid nineteenth century until the end of the First World War. He was appointed professorial research fellow at the University of Buckingham in 2017. Currently he is a political columnist and Associate Editor at the Daily Telegraph and previously wrote as a columnist for the Daily Mail.
The audience will have a chance to ask Simon their questions, share their views and enjoy a glass of wine (included in the ticket price) whilst enjoying the architecture of the oldest church in the City of London.
