The Church of Fear: Inside the Weird World of Scientology


John had postponed yesterday due to needing to put together an investigative report on the Grenfell Tower Fire in London for BBC Newsnight. But he then found just a few hours before the start that he could make it after all.
Many apologies from John and Farnham Humanists for all this confusion.

Sunday June 18th at  7 for 7.30pm

At Daniel Hall, Long Garden Walk, Farnham, GU9 7HX

Tom Cruise and John Travolta say the Church of Scientology is a force for good. Others disagree. Award-winning journalist John Sweeney investigated the Church for more than half a decade. During that time he was intimidated, spied on and followed and the results were spectacular: Sweeney lost his temper with the Church’s spokesman on camera and his infamous ‘exploding tomato’ clip was seen by millions around the world.

John Sweeney tells the story of his experiences and paints a devastating picture of this strange organisation, from former Scientologists who tell heartbreaking stories of families torn apart and lives ruined to its current followers who say it is the solution to many of mankind’s problems.

John Sweeney is an award-winning journalist and author, and an investigative journalist for the BBC’s Panorama series.

Everyone is welcome!!
