‘Religion and Atheism – Beyond the Divide?’
PCN Britain is delighted to invite you to this conference which offers an opportunity to engage with our speakers in a conversation about religion and atheism, seeking ways to dialogue and to search for meaning. In an increasingly tribalistic world we hope that this day will offer possibilities to go beyond the divides which separate us and to search out areas of mutual agreement and understanding.
