Discipleship group

Next session: Monday 20th January, 7.00 pm at St Thomas'. 

 A new Discipleship group started on Monday 18th November.
for St Peter’s, St Thomas’ and St John’s folk,

The sessions are based on chapters from a new book,
Confronting Christianity by Rebecca McLaughlin
– a book that has been very positively reviewed –
and sold out at Keswick! It costs £19.95

The topics are those that we are often challenged on and we sometimes struggle to respond to, so part of the aim of our getting together will be to help us think how we might respond to these challenges. As you will also see, the topics are quite controversial, so it is really important that we come along in an attitude of love for each other. It would be my hope that our discussions could be honest and open in what we say, without fear of ridicule, lack of respect, or that what we say might be reported to others.

Any questions, do get in touch.
