Team News 8 October

Posted on by Tania Birtwistle

Pilgrim Course – This Autumn we will begin a group for enquirers and new Christians who want to learn more about the Christian faith.

There will be two groups. An adults’ group that will meet on a Tuesday evening led by Rev Canon Simon Pitcher at 6.00pm, at Parson’s Meadow, Church Street. Wangford NR34 8RW,

and a teenagers’ group (secondary school age) that will meet on a Thursday at 6.15pm at Reydon Vicarage led by Rev Alan Perry.  Alan’s group will begin on 5 October and Simon’s on 10 October.

Initially for six weeks (excluding half term) but we hope to continue meeting in the new year.

The group is for:

  • Those who have recently started coming to Church
  • Those who want the chance to think about the Christian faith
  • Those preparing for baptism or confirmation
  • Those who have been Christian for many years and want to visit the roots of their faith again

For more information and also to confirm interest please email Simon or Alan or speak to us after Church.  Please pass on news about the group to anyone you know who may be interested.
