Brentwood School Chaplain Adrian talked about the conference he is organizing for chaplains across different sectors, education, hospitals, military and other areas. The conference will be of interest to anyone in this kind of role, which is often quite isolated. There will be opportunities to share practice. The conference is on Thursday the 1st of November ay Brentwood Preparatory School. Keynote speakers are Bishop Stephen Cottrell and Dr. Edward Kessler.
