The Priestley Centre for Climate Change Research
Ask a Climate Scientist
Thursday, 27 April 17:30-19:30
What’s the difference between climate change and global warming? How will climate change affect us? What actions can we take – and will they really make a difference?
Are you confused, concerned or just want to know more?
Ask a climate scientist!
A panel of experts from the world-leading Priestley International Centre for Climate and the ESRC Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy at the University of Leeds will be taking questions from the public in this special event for Earth Week. Please submit your questions in advance when you book your ticket.
The seated part of the evening commences at 6.00 and runs through to 7.30pm; we advise arriving earlier to participate in our Climate Chats (5.00-6.00pm) in the adjoining Priestley Hall, where you can talk informally to our scientists, learn about our Arctic research and enjoy refreshments.

Reading The Spirit
Every last Tuesday of the month, 19:00
‘Reading the spirit’ a book group – deepening our faith by investigating our sources; we decide a chapter, short book or long poem on the first Sunday of the month and then meet at Chapel on the last Tuesday of the month (omitting August and December) to discuss and explore what we’ve read in considerate and respectful debate. With cake. Any-one is welcome to join us on a journey of discovery. Authors we ‘ll be looking at include JL Borges, Sara Maitland, Sidney Spencer, Adrienne Rich, RS Thomas – and others at your suggestion… ‘Ho everyone who thirsteth, come ye to the waters’ Isaiah 55.1
Currently, we read and debate “Life Spirit” by David Usher.
Great Vegan Feast – Meal With The Homeless
Every third Thursday of the month, 18:00
Interfaith Vegan Alliance and Mill Hill Unitarians invite you to share delicious hot, whole and cruelty-free food with people who live in poverty/live outside, on the third Thursday of every month in the Hall. Pay what you can/free – volunteers/donations welcome.
Conversation Club For Refugees and Asylum Seekers
Every Thursday 14:30 – 16:60
Together with PAFRAS and Amnesty International Leeds Group we create a safe space for refugees and asylum seekers in Leeds, where they can meet, socialise and more importantly – learn English by having conversations with native speakers in a friendly, non-judgemental atmosphere. We need volunteers to help with The Conversation Club! All you’d have to do is chat, drink tea and meet new friends – please get in touch if you can help.
We are running low on funds. If you’re interested in donating to the project or setting up a corporate sponsorship please get in touch! Together we PAFRAS and AI Leeds we reimburse travel costs, so our attendees don’t have to stretch their already extremely low budgets even further. Without this money, most of them will be unable to get us for the day, therefore unable to learn English, improve their quality of life and integrate with our society. CHARITY NO. 1081978.
