Other Upcoming Events

New Courses at St. Margaret’s

‘The Story the Bible Tells' (Friday evening Jan. 25th and Saturday Jan. 26th) is a study of the 'big picture' of the Bible; participants will gain a clear sense of the time line of the Bible and where the main events fit in. No cost: bring your favourite Bible and a bag lunch for Saturday.

'Simply Christian: Why Christianity Makes Sense' is a ten week book and video study with Bishop Tom Wright (Tuesday evenings, February 12th - April 15th). Participants will need to purchase a copy of Tom Wright's book Simply Christian, cost $20.00, which will be provided on the first week of the course. In order to give us time to order the books, the registration deadline is January 22nd. Note: for any adults who are interested in confirmation, this course will also double as an adult confirmation course. Please talk to Tim if you would like to use it as such.

More information about both these courses can be found in a leaflet on the table in the foyer, 'Opportunities for Growing and Learning Together'. Signup sheets are also on the table in the foyer.
