Whilst the emphasis is predominantly biblical and Christian we are non-partisan and a range of faiths and non-religious outlooks in our regular gatherings ... Speakers are drawn from as wide a perspective as are willing to share their thoughts: from leading scholars in their field to those nearer the start of their studies, from politicians to priests, and many more.'
