25 years ago, Archbishop Robert Runcie’s special envoy, Terry Waite, was released from captivity in Beirut. He had been held hostage for almost five years.  In Out of the Silence, a moving sequence of poems and reflections, Terry Waite recalls the highs and lows of his life, both during that ordeal and throughout the happier times of humanitarian work that have followed.

Terry will also discuss other writings, including his autobiography, Taken on Trust and his novel, The Voyage of the Golden Handshake.  Join us to hear his incredible journey and his personal thoughts on his current life.
