This Thursday, 8 October,  the Church and Media Network will host a public debate  in London on BBC Radio 4's controversial Thought for the Day . The motion for debate is that "This House Believes that Humanist speakers should be included in BBC Radio 4's Thought for the Day."

The motion will be proposed by Dr Andrew Copson of the British Humanist Association. He will be joined by comedienne Ariane Sherine, who masterminded the "atheist bus campaign". Opposing the motion will be Canon Giles Fraser, who is a regular Thought for the Day contributor and Rt Rev Nick Baines. The debate will be chaired by Today presenter Edward Stourton.

The debate will be held at the LICC at St Peter's, Vere Street (off Oxford Street). Refreshments will be served from 6.30pm and the debate will begin at 7pm. Members of the public are welcome, with tickets available on the door. Friends of The Church and Media Network who would like to reserve a seat are invited to email:
