These are aimed especially at Pathfinder and Plattform age young people. (But if you are interested and not in those groups, come and talk to Paul or Sarah.)
Getting Invited In
Come along for an evening of stories of an ordinary Christian engaging with his with his Muslim neighbours in extraordinary ways. Free admission.
'Growing Spiritually' (session 2) with Dr Shirley Jenner
From a Christian perspective, what do we understand by Growing Spiritually? When and how do we grow? What about seasons when we don’t feel we are growing? Join us over two evenings near the start and end of Lent, for a shared conversation about our experience of Growing Spiritually. The evenings will include an optional “spacious place” for anyone who prefers to reflect on these questions in peace and quiet. All welcome.
