Welcome to the Leeds Church Institute, an organisation with a history of offering Christian based education for the people of Leeds for over 150 years. LCI is well placed at the heart of the city and continues to develop training events and resources to assist learning for a faithful city.
Margaret Halsey has given notice of her intention to retire as Director of the Leeds Church Institute on 30th June this year, with her last day of service being Friday 28th June.
We take this opportunity to thank Margaret most warmly for all that she has given to the LCI in her time as Director, whilst being mindful that there will be an opportunity to thank her much more fully at the time her retirement takes effect.
Contributions to a retirement gift for Margaret would be very gladly received and can be sent to Haydn Farrar at the LCI.
