St Bartholomew's United Church - 7.00pm
Cost: Members 2.00 Guests 4.00

QLHG secretary John Adsley asks the questions and suggests some answers. Where did the people of Quorn choose to worship? Why did so many choose to follow their conscience and reject the Church of England in favour of other Christian sects? How did this choice to be a dissenter adversely affect their lives and that of their families? How typical were they of the rest of the population of England and Wales in the nineteenth century? How did the Church of England respond to this increasing unpopularity?
