Christian Book Group

Started in the summer of 2012, the group discusses mainstream fiction and biographies from a Christian perspective. How do we, as Christians, respond to characters and events from books we read? Our answers will never be complete and lead to definite conclusions, but it will hopefully raise a number of issues for us to consider. Our aim is to have a good discussion, share fellowship, a chat, fun, a glass of wine, and generally a good evening. If you are interested you would be very welcome to join us. Please contact the Church Office for more information.
