SUNDAY EVENING GATHERINGS

Spring / Summer 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 will begin a new series of five studies “Dangerous Stories – Exploring the Parables of Jesus”. The Bible shows us again and again that God is on the side of the people at the edges.  But too often we forget that perspective. These Bible studies are designed to help us read the parables of Jesus at the forefront of our minds. We should discover that Jesus’ stories have a lot to say about our economic systems and how we relate to one another. They challenge us to get alongside the people who are on the margins of society and speak out for justice. They are “Dangerous stories”.

Discussion 

We will hold the final discussion in the series on “Embracing the Other” on 12 May. A further series of discussions will begin in October.

Documentaries 

Documentaries will be about Immigration. 

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.
