Book Club

We are not trying to be very intellectual in this group, but we do really enjoy a good discussion and each other’s company from across all the parishes – a brilliant way to meet new people.
You are very welcome to join us for one gathering or more.
We will miss the October 6th bookclub meeting as we have been late in deciding on the next book. So on November 3rd we are proposing  to look at a slim small book of poetry that Lydia has recommended ‘Haphazard by Starlight’ 

Next on 3 November
 at 7.30pm online.

3 November and 1 December

Here's what to do if you would like to join us

We are reading ‘Running with Horses’ by Eugene Peterson

Advent is celebrated when the year is becoming darker and colder, moving into the death and dormancy of winter. Before we can greet the coming of the light, we need to engage with some themes that are challenging and occasionally fearful. Like the Magi who travelled a long distance to search out and adore the infant Jesus, and who took some wrong turns on the way, we too have a journey to undertake before we find that we have ‘Walked haphazard by starlight straight Into the kingdom of heaven.’

Communion during this time

In these unprecedented times, we are working hard to find imaginative solutions in a landscape that has been rapidly changing. Sometimes we get things right, and sometimes we miss the mark. I apologise that this has been the case regarding communion.

For those of you who have received wafers in a parcel, we would ask that you either consume them, or put them somewhere safe to bring back once we are able to be together again.

We are going to be sending out a new order of service for use during this time as either a simple service of the word or, on occasion, to help us to share an Agape meal together.
