Discussion Group

Lent Study 2017

The Monday Discussion Group are looking at a Lent Study based on the words of Jesus from the cross. This will be an exploration of his final moments on earth and how these words impact on our lives today.

The group is informal and the discussion free flowing and is aimed at helping us to better understand our faith through fellowship and experience. A deep knowledge of the Bible is not a requirement to join the group and we would be delighted to welcome you starting on Monday 13th March 2017 at 7:30pm at the Church Centre.

If you would like further information please don’t hesitate to contact Morag or Douglas Allan.

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 17th October in the Church Centre.  

Our topic for the first few weeks will focus on Proverbs and Parables and we would be pleased to welcome new members.  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.
