Discussion Group

Winter Session 2017 – 18

We restart our new session on Monday 11 September 2017 at 7:30pm in the Church Centre. We will be looking at the Book of James.  Unlike most books of the New Testament, the letter of James is perhaps best known for the people who don’t like it! One commentator observed, ‘it is seen as a rogue among the obviously Christ-centred letters of Paul and the love-concerned writings of John’. People like love. They like Christ. They don’t like James!’

Should make for some interesting discussions – why not come and try?

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 11th September 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.
