Discussion Group

Try and read at least one book of the Apocrypha before the meeting, so we have plenty for discussion. The New English Bible is a straightforward read.

 

Thursday 28th March       RELIGION IN ART (Part 2)  7.30pm at St Andrew’s

If you have a favourite religious ‘art’ picture, bring a copy and tell us about it.

 

EVERYONE IS WELCOME.Please contact Janet Kemp for more information

The Bible Book Club    NEW!

The first meeting was an excellent discussion of Jonah. We appreciated reading through the whole book. Several people had taken the discussion questions home to ‘have a go’ privately instead of coming to the meeting. We appreciate that not everyone is able to get out in the evening, but might want to take part.

 

The next book to read is AMOS, an Old Testament prophet/shepherd. The discussion questions can be found on biblesociety.org.uk/biblebookclub, and paper copies will be available after Christmas.

The next meeting f will be on February 27th, 7.30pm  at 242 Hatherley Rd.

 

The next meeting for discussion will be in February – plenty of time to read!

Happy reading the next book of the Bible.

Reading Group

The next meeting of the Reading Group will take place on Wednesday 13 February at 7.30pm. It will be held at the home of Wendy Outram.

The book to be discussed is ‘Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine’ winner of the Costa Book Award 2017. Eleanor is thirty years old and has been in the same job for nine years and follows a simple existence which is more or less predictable. She doesn’t think she is lonely but the reader discovers that she is, as are many people these days. It is not a sad book but has funny episodes and shows the kindness of people.

New members are welcome and if interested please contact Mary Cummings

 

Knitters Needed!

Cheltenham Street Pastors are appealing for small items of warm clothing that can be handed out when the weather is very cold. Gloves, especially man-sized and woolly hats would be much appreciated.

 

Prayer support is always welcome – is that a service you could offer?

More information from Tony Jeans or Ann Gimingham at St Andrew’s
