Once a month during 2016, we will be holding a DVD based discussion programme as part of our commitment to Exploring Faith. This year we begin with a seven part series “Painting the Stars” produced by the team that brought us “Living the Questions.” 

The title comes from Vincent Van Gogh, who said: "When I have a terrible need of - dare I say, 'religion' - then I go outside at night and paint the stars." 

Our next session will be held in the church from 11:30am to 12:30pm, Sunday, 15-May-2016
Everyone is welcome.​
