Anne Milton said, this morning (May 24): “After the success of their general election hustings, I am delighted that Guildford Baptist Church will be hosting one of the local EU Referendum debates.

“I know that the two speakers will have a lot to contribute to the debate and I look forward to hearing some challenging questions from the audience. I hope that this will play an important part in informing people ahead of the vote on 23 June.”

Rod Boreham, Guildford Town Centre Chaplain, said: “With so many claims and counter-claims about the effects of the EU referendum on the future of the UK being bandied about in the media, I believe that the debate being organised on 9 June at Guildford Baptist Church by Anne Milton MP is vital.

“Very few of us have had a chance to hear sane, rational arguments from either side of the debate, and this event gives us a chance to listen and ask pertinent questions directly to those who should have some answers.”

The event will not be ticketed. The church will be open to all comers and has a capacity of 500.  Details for the church can be found on and all enquiries can be sent to
