After the death of his father at the hands of the I.R.A., Billy McCurrie wanted to seek revenge. This led him down a destructive path, and Billy eventually became involved in a paramilitary organisation during the Irish troubles. Whilst in prison Billy came to a faith which enabled him to move away from his past.
On Friday 7th February 2020, we have invited Billy to speak about his journey. We hope this public discussion will help any who are trying to understand, and wanting to find answers to, the consuming violence which can appear in our society and across the world.
The evening begins at 7.15pm and will consist of a presentation by Billy, followed by a chance to ask questions and raise discussion. Whatever your belief, you’re welcome to come along, listen and contribute. No ticket is required and no charge is made; just turn up. We expect to finish around 9.00pm.
Location: Leytonstone Library Hall, Church Road, Leytonstone, E11 1HG
