(1).  Wednesdays at 7.45pm at Old Farm, Ivy Lane.

Subject “The Bible Course”.  Run very much along the lines of Alpha, with 20 minutes DVD talk followed by 20 minutes discussion, then another 20 minutes talk and another 20 minutes discussion, finishing at 9.30pm.

It is somewhat of a race through the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, but it gives an overview of 'His Story'. There will be 8 weekly sessions, which will be inspiring however little or much we feel we know about the Bible.

The first session is an overview which stands on its own - you might like to come to that and make your decision to join or not after that. 

(2).  Thursday afternoons in the Lady Chapel at 2pm

A series of talks, followed by refreshments, and the opportunity for questions and discussion.

Faith and Experience:

Each week the Rector will give a talk, beginning with some personal reflections, to explore our faith in the context of our life and experience.

1    Faith and our story      (Thursday 13th March)
How can we see God at work in our own life story?

2    Faith and caring      (Thursday 20th March)
What can we learn through the experience of caring for others?

3    Faith in music and song      (Thursday 27th March)
Can we experience God through music that we enjoy?

4    Faith in fiction      (Thursday 3rd April)
Can reading fiction help us to explore faith and spiritual life?

5    Reflecting on faith      (Thursday 10th April)
      Are there some common factors and patterns in our experience of faith?
