God's Big Picture
If you have ever wanted to understand better what the Bible is all about, then our upcoming series on a Sunday evening is for you. The Bible is a big book and it can sometimes be hard to grasp how it all fits together, or where the story is going. God's Big Picture is a 9-week course which will help us to understand the big picture of God's own book, and what it means for us today.
When: Sunday evenings, starting Sunday 24th September Time: 6:30-7:45pm What: A 9-week course giving an overview of the story of the whole Bible from Genesis to Revelation Format: A short DVD talk, followed by Bible study and discussion in small groups Who: For anyone who wants to understand the story of the Bible (and indeed the story of the world) better - whether you usually come to church events or not! All are very welcome.

Bible studies: A group of us meets on Tuesday mornings during term-time to look at a Bible passage and discuss its significance to us. There is a warm invitation to anyone who can join us, whenever they are free. We conclude with 'elevenses'. Another group meets on Wednesday evenings, starting with a light meal.
Games Plus: Join in with short-mat bowls, snooker, table tennis or other activities. Not only are there games, but also the opportunity to pause for a short time and think about something important over refreshments. Sometimes this involves watching a short talk about the Christian faith on DVD. All ages welcome.
