The series of Friday evening talks involves the examination and exposition of some of the most important and formative Biblical passages.


*There are two styles to the Friday evening gatherings:

'Services' will contain some recognisable liturgical elements 'Cafe style' services will also incorporate discussions and Q&A, where appropriate.

All Friday gatherings will be fully power-pointed, Illustrated and projected.

** Each Friday has a title and a principal passage; the talks will mainly be based on the passage and only secondarily on the title. That said, the theme emerges from that passage.

*** The provision of simple refreshments following the services will be laid on for those who have time to linger. Catering details may change from the published particulars.
