The Woking Debates seek to encourage active participation in our community by looking at underlying issues facing us. Together we can find ways forward towards a more equal, peaceful and united world. To be held in the Gallery at Christ Church, Woking town centre.
We hope that you will join us in these debates, putting your own views or just listening. Refreshments will not be served (except for water) so you might like to have coffee beforehand – the Christ Church café will be open.
The debates are free, but donations to cover costs will be warmly welcomed on the day.
