Discussion Group

Christian Life

The Monday Discussion Group will be undertaking a DVD based study on the Christian Life and why it makes sense – starting on the 24 April 2017 at 7:30pm in the meeting room in the Church Centre. This study aims to help us be more confident in the existence of God; tackling one of the main barriers to faith – suffering; understanding why Jesus is so special; unpacking why the church is so great and building our faith in a God who is always with us.

On the DVD we will hear from a variety of experts who will pose discussion points for us to unpack. This is an informal group where we have the opportunity to explore aspects of our faith. No deep knowledge of the Bible is required. The group are always pleased to welcome new participants – why not come and try this short 6 week course as a taster?

Discussion-Group heads

Would you like the opportunity to explore your faith in a friendly and supportive way?

We meet on a Monday evening to discuss aspects of our faith in a small friendly group.  You don’t need to have an intimate knowledge of the Bible as the main purpose is to explore our faith from a practical point of view.  We share our views and opinions in a supportive atmosphere and  listen to what others are saying.

A typical evening comprises of reading a selected passage from the Bible and then reflecting on some questions to inform our discussions.  There aren’t always right or wrong answers and we often end up with a variety of responses to a question which reflect our personal faith experience.  Importantly, we respect other points of view even although we may not always agree!  There have been times when people have commented about a useful insight to their understanding of the Bible which influences new understanding for them.  Very importantly we always start with tea and coffee!

We meet at 7.30pm on Monday evenings and our new session starts on the 24th April in the Church Centre.  

 Please feel free to come along and sample a discussion (without commitment) to see whether this would be something you might be interested in.  Naturally we would be delighted if you chose to come back the following week but if you feel that the group is not for you then that is okay.

If you would like to talk to someone about the group, please feel free to contact the Minister or Morag and Douglas Allan.
