For Such a Time as This

An Evening with Lord Alton of Liverpool

New date : Monday 12th May 2014

The evening will begin with music from the band Ooberfule, including songs dedicated to the martyred Pakistani Catholic Shahbaz Bhatti, freedom for Burma, and World Youth Day.
At 8pm Lord Alton will speak on political engagement, the place of conscience, religious liberty and the right to Life, in Britain and around the world, including in countries such as North Korea, Burma, Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo, as well as here at home.
For 18 years David Alton was a Member of the House of Commons and today is an independent Cross-bencher Life Peer.  In 1972 he was elected as Britain’s youngest City Councillor, in Liverpool, the youngest member of the House of Commons in 1979, and in 1997 was made a Life Peer of the House of Lords.
Ooberfuse is a Catholic band which performed the official English language song for World Youth Day 2013, and has performed around the world, including Rome & Rio de Janeiro, as well as across the UK.

The evening is in aid of two Christian organisations working for religious freedom around the world:

Aid to the Church in Need (ACN), a Catholic charity supporting churches facing persecution,

and

Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW), an ecumenical advocacy organisation
documenting and reporting injustice and persecution and promoting religious freedom for all.
