St Peter’s XI v Archbishop of Canterbury’s XI

The first-ever cricket match between the Vatican and the Church of England takes place on Friday 19 September. The Twenty20 match is at the Spitfire Ground in Canterbury, courtesy of the Kent County Cricket Club. It begins at 4 p.m. and entry is free. (A collection will be made for the Global Freedom Network, the anti-trafficking charity set up by Pope Francis and the Archbishop of Canterbury.)

Details of the match, and how to get to the ground, are available on www.kentcricket.co.uk.

 

Gala Dinner

In aid of the Global Freedom Network

After the match and the presentations, enjoy an evening with the Archbishop and the teams in the elegant members' lounge at Kent County Cricket Club.

Once the presentations have been made, there will be an opportunity for drinks while the players change. The meal will start at about 7.30. Diners will be seated at round tables of ten. Tickets cost £60. Order a table of ten and get one free place: just £540. Dress formal: lounge suits.

After the meal, there will be a charity auction, presided over by Henry Olonga, former Zimbabwe International Cricketer and commentator. All proceeds will go to the Global Freedom Network, the anti-trafficking charity set up by the Archbishop of Canterbury and Pope Francis. 

The evening should finish by 10 o'clock, to assist those with long journeys.
