Former Bishop of Rochester Rt Rev Michael Nazir-Ali confirms attendance at our Peace Rally!

The Rt Rev Michael Nazir Ali has confirmed that he will be attending our Peace Rally on the 31st of July.  Without a doubt Dr Nazir-Ali is one of the most influential and key figures in our community.  See short profile below taken form Wikipedia:

"Michael James Nazir-Ali (born 19 August 1949) was the 106th Bishop of Rochester in the Church of England. On 28 March 2009 he announced his intention to resign and he retired as diocesan bishop in September 2009, taking up a position as director of the Oxford Centre for Training, Research, Advocacy and Dialogue. He holds dual citizenship of both Pakistan and Britain.

Michael Nazir-Ali was born in Karachi, Pakistan to Christian parents, James and Patience Nazir-Ali. His father converted from Islam. He attended the Roman Catholic-run St Patrick's school in Karachi and began attending Roman Catholic services and identifying as Christian at the age of 15; he was formally received into the Church of Pakistan aged 20."
