Lucky people who are aged 18-35. But where can us folks in our 60s go to hear such a range of wonderful speakers?
If I go I'll video it for you.

Laurence - where were you this morning for the Big Question from Brighton?? Christina Odone sounded fairly sure that wimim bishops were "down the road". The BBC was more balanced than ever before - not, with CO daring to suggest that marriage should be - wait for it - between a man and a woman, to stoney silence from the rest of the audience.

There was one fantastic young guy Peter who was brilliant and a woman from the synod - have a look. We'll have to say an awful lot more prayers for the conversion of England!
