Think Tank

Contemporary Society and Contemporary Religion

The Christ Church ThinkTank has been in existence for over 10 years. It draws on speakers from all the churches in the Lewes area.  Whether you go to church or not, come whenever the topic interests you. The format is 45 minutes talk and 45 minutes discussion and our average attendance is about 30. All meetings are from 7.30 pm to 9 pm.

Our next meeting will be on Wednesday 25 October 2017, when Dr Graham Mayhew will be speaking on:

The changing face of Local Government  

Graham Mayhew comes from an old Lewes family, is a professional historian and academic and has been involved in local politics for over 50 years. He has taught for the Open University, the Centre for Continuing Education at the University of Sussex, is the author of The Monks of Saint Pancras (2014), and regularly takes visitors around Lewes. He is currently working on the Lewes men and women killed during the First World War. Elected to Lewes Town Council in 1979 and Lewes District Council in 1983 he has also served 30 years as a magistrate. He was recently Mayor of Lewes for the fourth time. He will draw on his experience and historical perspective to assess recent changes in local government and their implications for local accountability and what council tax payers can reasonably expect from the councillors and local authorities they elect.
