SUNDAY EVENING GATHERINGS

Winter  2018 / Spring 2019

You are warmly invited to join us in the lounge on Sunday evenings at 6.00 pm.  Everyone is welcome to attend these informal and ‘friendly user’ sessions.

We aim to make all these sessions ‘stand-alone’ enabling you to take a full part in later sessions even if you are unable to come to the earlier ones.

There is a mixture of:

Bible Study

We begin a new series of four studies – ‘Conversation Welcoming – Exploring the Future of the UK after the Referendum’.

Discussion 

We begin a new series of five discussions on ecumenism entitled ‘Embracing the Other’. We are considering ‘receptive ecumenism’ which is a way of thinking and a process that enables unity to be built by receiving gifts from others. It challenges us not to think of what others might benefit from receiving from us but instead invites us to recognise our needs and to put ourselves in the place of being a recipient.    

Documentaries 

In late February we will watch a documentary entitled ‘What Muslims Really Think’. In March the topic of our documentary will be ‘Jesus’ Female Disciples. The documentary in April will be announced later.
