Join us for the next Nottingham Workplace Chaplaincy 'INSIGHT' meeting on Wednesday 21st March 2018, 12.00-1.30pm.
These meetings have the objective of informing people about different aspects of the day to day workings of the city. Key people join us to give an ‘INSIGHT’ into their areas of responsibility and interest.
For this meeting, Julie Obermeyer, Museum Officer and Curator of the William Booth Birthplace Museum in Sneinton, will give an INSIGHT into William Booth’s formative years and how he (and others) went on to develop a Salvation Army that today has 1.5 million members in 128 countries.
Born on 10th April 1829 in a house at the edge of Sneinton, William Booth went on to start the Salvation Army that on his death in 1912 numbered 15,875 officers and cadets, operating in 58 lands.
We will meet at noon in Notintone Place, Sneinton Dale. A buffet lunch will be provided. To help with the catering arrangements, please email: email@example.com to confirm your attendance. There will also be an opportunity to tour the museum.
