Friends' events

For the benefit of Friends who cannot get to events in London, we shall continue to broadcast some of the talks on Zoom. However, as the purpose of charging is to raise funds for the grant-giving work of the Friends of the City Churches, there will be no difference in price between Zoom or in situ events.
