One life. What's it all about?
Christianity Explored is an informal course, where in a relaxed setting, there is chance to explore some of life's big questions, and to find out how Jesus answers them. There is no singing, praying or reading. No question is too simple or hostile. Christianity Explored is designed for curious sceptics, as well as for those who want a refresher in the Christian faith. It offers a chance to read through and discuss the Gospel of Mark, the earliest life of Jesus we have. Christianity Explored is an eight session series with each lasting about 90 minutes. If you are interested please speak to the vicar.
A thank you and a request
Thank you so much to everybody who sponsored the cost of the new Bibles in our churches. We have reached my target of 50 Bibles for each church and also large print editions for the lecterns. On reflection I think we could actually use another 40, so if you did not get around to sponsoring please have a word with me. Some donors have requested that labels be placed inside the Bibles indicating that they have been sponsored and in some case given in memory. I will attend to getting this done shortly. If you have sponsored Bibles and would like a simple label stating e.g. 'This Bible was sponsored by ….. in loving memory of …..' please Email me the wording and I will see that it happens. Keith
We learn how Jesus enables us to move from seeing God as being remote and alien, to a restored relationship with our heavenly Father
A Men's Breakfast with Gary Grant, founder of 'The Entertainer' Mill Green, Wargrave, Saturday 3rd June 8.00am-10.00am
In 1981 Gary Grant opened a local toy shop in Amersham, Buckinghamshire. 'The Entertainer' is now the UK's biggest independent toy retailer with approximately 130 stores and a new one opening every month. The Entertainer is a true family business, Gary's wife, Catherine sons Duncan and Stuart and Stuart are directors. Gary runs a highly successful business, but ethics always come first - the Grant Foundation donates to a number of local charities - the shops have a Sunday closing policy - they do not stock Halloween products. After tea, coffee and bacon rolls Gary will tell us his story of how he came to faith and why that faith is so important to him. Guys, I will be going and would warmly encourage you to come along, and maybe bring a friend. You need a ticket - but tickets are free, please speak to or Email me to obtain. Keith.
