This term we will be reading a fantasy novel based on the real life of a Domincan monk – Lent by Jo Walton. If you need help buying the book online or would like us to pay for it please speak to Mthr Katie – both are possible and we don’t want expense or ordering problems to prevent you joining. We would love to have you with us.
12 noon – Celtic Communion led by Mthr Katie (15-20 minute informal service) in church.
12.20 – 1pm – Community Lunch ask for the Vicar’s special if you can’t afford – and we will buy your lunch for you – no problem at all. Or you can order your own – choice of baked potatoes or toasted sandwiches – or you are welcome to bring your own.
1.15-2.15pm – CHATTERBOX – our new discussion group – with discussion prompts from box sets about all matters of life, love and faith. We are hoping this group will become both a service to the community and an outreach group where we can offer free conversation practice to those who have English as a second language. We’d love you to be part of this.
