On behalf of John Hick’s daughter Ele:
For any queries please contact her directly ( ).
My brothers and I would like to thank you all for the wonderful support we have received from you all. The messages we have received have been so generous and we have particularly appreciated that you speak so warmly of John the friend and person you knew as well as John the academic, scholar and philosopher.
I shall be collecting up all of those tributes and messages which will be posted on John’s website in due course. A life well lived without doubt!
My brothers and I wish to make an open invitation to friends, colleagues and students of John’s work to attend a memorial service for John to take place on Friday May 11th at Carrs Lane Church Centre, Birmingham B4 7SX. It will be at 2pm.
We are still working on the details but wanted to give you the date as soon as possible. One reason for choosing this particular venue is that is large enough to enable all who wish to attend to do so. The other reason is that he had long associations with Carrs Lane.
We anticipate that we will invite a small number of speakers to reflect on John’s life and work and will then hold a Quaker service (meeting) reflecting his choice of worship. Refreshments will be available after the service and hopefully plenty of opportunity for family, friends and colleagues to meet and talk together.
I will be in touch in due course with final details, maps etc. In the meanwhile, if you know you are likely to attend or know of others who intend to come, it would be helpful to know.
