All Trust members are invited to join for a briefing by Trust Director Martin Hamilton. He’ll be bringing us up to date on the Trust response to the Coronavirus pandemic, as well as highlighting some of the initiatives that are happening throughout the city to help keep us all as safe as possible.
We are aware that as members you won’t be enjoying your full membership benefits at the moment, Martin will update you on options that the Trust is looking at.
The meeting will be held via Zoom, but please register your interest in advance to receive the link. There will be an opportunity for Q&A via the chat function.

Join us online for this special talk where Joyce will take us through the fascinating story of the city’s oldest places of worship, their history and how they served, and continue to serve, their congregations.
Professor Joyce Hill is an international authority on the transmission of Christian culture in early medieval Europe. Now retired from the University of Leeds, but still very active in research and an eminent and authoritative speaker.
Originally, this talk was scheduled to take place within the beautiful surroundings of the Leeds Minster –itself a site of a church for over 1400 years, and was to be preceded by a social get-together over wine & nibbles. Alas, this is now not possible but if your last shopping trip was a success you may have something in the cupboard to go along with the intellectual nourishment provided by this talk!
NB: You will need to have the Zoom app (there is a free version) downloaded onto your device in order to be able to participate.
