Join us for a time of prayer and symbolic action at the Ministry of Defence on Ash Wednesday 14 February 2018.  We will reflect on  our own need of repentance and conversion and call our Government to repent of its involvement in nuclear war preparations.  We will also be inspired by the encouragement of Pope Francis and other religious leaders and the success of the Nuclear Weapon Ban Treaty in 2017.

We meet at 3.00pm in Whitehall Gardens (closest to Embankment station.  Come out of station on rive-side and turn right and walk to Whitehall Gardens)
