Yes I know you don’t normally read this page but I’m glad that you have this month because this is for you. I’m gathering together some small groups of people who frankly find the Christian faith less than convincing but who would be willing to hear again some of the startling stories that Jesus told and to discuss what he meant by them . Each of the four evenings will begin with puddings and coffee (always a good place to start), lead on to short DVD presentations of one of Jesus’ stories-with-surprising-endings, and give plenty of time to discuss the stories and other questions that you might have. These groups will be informal and no-one will be asked to read or pray or sing or do anything they don’t want to do.
Choose between the two ‘Tales of the Unexpected’ groups; I will lead both.
· Four evenings 7.30pm – 9.30pm
· Burton on Wednesdays 6th, 13th, 20th& 27th November
· Holme on Thursdays 7th, 14th, 21st & 28th November
· There is no charge but please book a place by contacting me - see below.
Why are we doing this? The church does not exist just for those who think of themselves as ‘religious’. We are not a closed club. If the things that Jesus claimed about himself are true then we want to explain them and share them. We will not assume that you are familiar with the Bible; you are welcome to ask any question, however ‘obvious’. Nor are we afraid of hearing the views of those who want to question what the Bible says or who are uncertain about the things that the Christian church stands for. We expect these groups to be full of lively debate and you are very welcome to join us!
