Our last meeting of the summer term was on Sunday, 8th July 2018 so we have now broken up for the summer.  We plan to resume meetings in September, focusing on apologetics.  We will be looking at tough questions covering topics which enquirers to the Christian faith ask such as:

Why does God allow suffering?

What about other religions?  Don’t all ways lead to God?

etc…

We trust that all will have a great summer and we look forward to seeing you at future meetings in September.
