Attendance registration forms are now available for the Johannes A Lasco Conference at the Dutch Church, 7 Austin Friars, London, 10-11 June 2016.
In 1550 A Lasco (1499-1560), a prominent Protestant reformer from Poland, was appointed first superintendent of the Austin Friars Church. Protestant refugees from the Low Countries were arriving in London at the time to escape absolutism, extremism and persecution during the Spanish Inquisition. As superintendent, A Lasco helped foster a refuge where they were free to gather and worship.
