Over sixty CLC members gathered this evening for the 2023 National Assembly, braving torrential rain and heavy traffic for those travelling by road, and a dearth of taxis at the station for those coming by public transport! It didn’t put anyone off…

In the opening session, Ann Kelly, Midlands rep, welcomed us and after opening prayers, our Ecclesiastical Advisor, Bishop Ralph Heskett introduced himself. Jackie Gill then ably introduced the theme of the weekend by sharing her experience of the last World Assembly in Beunos Aires. Finally we repaired to the lounge and many talked well into the night.

Take a look at the programme.
