Ann Morisy biography

Ann is an independent community theologian who lives in Streatham, south London, although you may be suspicious of her accent which is more Bootle than Streatham! Ann is an internationally acclaimed lecturer whose presentations are down to earth but informed by scholarship as well as being engaging and light-hearted. Ann has authored a number of well-regarded books on the social action and the distinctive contribution that churches can make. Her most recent book addresses the issue of intergenerational fairness, calling on ‘baby-boomers’ to play a pivotal part in attending to the well-being of younger generations.

Tea, coffee and biscuits will be served.

The Lady Chapel door will be open for the outside but if anyone needs an accessible route they need to come through the main body of the cathedral via the lift from the carpark and the Lady Chapel has a lift.

There is also disabled access via the lift entrance at the side of the Cathedral.
