Do Animals have Rights? Come and join The Ethics Forum on Tuesday, 21 March, at 7.30pm for 8pm, a discussion forum on topical issues. This one will explore such issues as dominion, suffering, and rights, and whether animals have souls.  We welcome Dr Clair Linzey, a theologian, ethicist and writer, who is Deputy Director of the Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics, with Roger Bolton facilitating the discussion.  Meet some great people and do a little bit of theology (optional)! Thomas Field Hall, Little Gaddesden Church.  Please message to secure your place.

Refreshments are served. No charge but contributions welcome to support the work of the speaker. We look forward to seeing you!
