Coming up we have four social evenings set aside, 2 in June and 2 in July for us to investigate Christianity.
This is not some heavy review of scripture rather an informal get together over coffee and Danish to discuss, debate, challenge and consider everything you wanted to know about Christianity but were afraid to ask. Wherever you are on a scale of 1 to 10 in terms of faith or beliefs come along and join us for what will be a lively and entertaining discussion. Inevitably beer will follow for the (fool) hardy.
o Venue – Costa Coffee in the High Street Bishops Stortford.
o Dates – Monday the 13th & 27th June and 11th & 25Th July.
o Time – 7.15pm for a 7.30pm Start
o How Long – Each evening is expected to last 60 minutes.
o A coffee and pastry will be provided for each person.
o You don’t have to bring anything – any applicable material / guides will be provided.
We are going to use material from Christianity Explored and cover the 4 topics (TBC).
The format for each evening will be simply – a brief introduction and then a 15 minutes DVD on one of the 4 topics followed by a break for a coffee and a bun and then split into groups to chat about some of the issues raised. This is not going to be a church service, there will be no singing, you won’t be asked to read out loud and indeed you won’t be expected to say anything if you don’t wish however it is hoped that within the smaller groups an energetic discussion will pursue.
Who is helping to run / lead this event – David Dearman, Iain Mott, Tim Jones and Nigel Blair-Park.
Why run this? – As you know Cromarty follows Christian values and feedback from many of you is that you also share similar values. It’s not about getting people to commit to anything but over a coffee and a chat among friends we hope to stir up some healthy interest.
Numbers wise – Costa in town can comfortably cater for 24 attendees. Please begin to give this some thought as we will start to come out seeking numbers early May.
We do hope you can join us.
David – Iain – Tim – Nigel
