Pilgrim Course

The two groups who met with John and Jeremy for the Autumn Courses will combine for one Pilgrim Course this January and February. The focus for discussion will be the Eucharist. The course will take place at St. Peter's Hall at 7.30 p.m. on Wednesday evenings starting on Wednesday January 17th. There will be six sessions in all with a break on February 14th for Ash Wednesday. We look forward to renewing fellowship with those who attended one or other of the Autumn courses but everyone is welcome to join us and it is not essential to have attended one of the Autumn courses. For more details do contact John Fuller on 01747 850079. As before a study guide will be available. We look forward to seeing you.
