God-Bites is a series of sessions we have organised to help us to engage with topics which are related to our faith. At each session we will hear from an expert who will talk to us for 15-20 minutes, then we will have a period of informal questions and answers and discussion. We are also planning a couple of sessions which will have a panel, so we can enjoy a gentle debate and hear different views on a subject.
Each session will be at lunchtime, usually on a Thursday starting at 12noon, and will last about an hour, so that we can enjoy an informal lunch together after the session. The venue will depend on the number of people booked – either in the History Room in the office or in the Cotton Chapel in St Botolph. There is no cost; booking is just to give us an indication of numbers for the session. All are welcome – the sessions will be suitable for those who don’t regularly attend services, as well as congregation members.
To book please contact Revd Sue Rose via email@example.com, (01205) 310929
or inform the Church Office.
