Faith, Fun, and Fellowship

Coming in September - a new Tuesday evening variety night at St. Margaret's:

Upcoming Events:

September 8th: Pot Luck Supper 6.00 – 8.00 p.m.
A time to share a meal and reconnect with our fellow Christians after the summer holidays.

September 15th: ‘Wine, Hymns, and Songs’ 7.30 – 9.00 p.m.
Bring a bottle of wine to share if you like. We’ll break out the hymn books and song books and have a good old fashioned singalong, and maybe learn a few new songs too.

September  22nd: ‘Free For All’ 7.30 – 9.00 p.m.
Do you have a question about faith that you’d like to discuss? Bring it with you. We’ll list the questions, pick the first two or three to cover, and hold the others for next month.

September  29th: ‘Quick Read: Galatians’ 7.30 – 9.00 p.m.
St. Paul’s letter to the Galatians is about five or six pages in most copies of the Bible. We’ll read it through, share our impressions, questions etc., get some background, and hopefully go away encouraged and challenged by what Paul has to say.

October 6th: Pot Luck Supper 6.00 – 8.00 p.m.
Just what the label says: come, share a meal and enjoy the company of your fellow Christians.

October 13th: ‘Faith & Mental Illness’ 7.30 – 9.00 p.m.
Many of us struggle with mental illness, or have family members who do so. Sheila Hagan-Bloxham will lead us in a discussion in which we will have the opportunity to share our experiences and dream together about how our church could be more supportive of those who walk this difficult journey.

October 20th: ‘Free For All’ 7.30 – 9.00 p.m.
Continuing from last month, with room for new questions too!

October 27th: ‘Quick Read: Jonah’ 7.30 – 9.00 p.m.

What most people think they know about Jonah was that he was swallowed by a fish, but in fact there’s a lot more to this little gem of a book than that! Once again, we’ll read it through (about three and a half pages), then share our impressions, questions, etc. and discuss what it has to say to us in our very different circumstances in 2015.
