They will arrive at the Barn on Sunday late afternoon. You are very welcome to meet them, join in a Deep Talk story or eat with them at 7.15pm. Please let us know if you intend to come. On Monday morning they will stop briefly at Surlingham Church for refreshments. They will collect up any messages or prayers we wish to send to the Prime Minister at COP 26.
