Christianity Explored is a nine-week Bible Study which walks through the Gospel of Mark, exploring the questions: Who is Jesus? Why did Jesus come? And what does Jesus want from me? It follows the format of watching a short DVD, giving the opportunity to ask questions and discuss various topics about Christianity, or just to sit and listen. It’s very informal and relaxed, and one in which anyone is welcome to attend. Christianity Explored will begin on Tuesday 10th September at 7.30pm in the manse. Please consider attending. If you would like more information about it, please speak to Murdo.
“A Sabbath well spent brings a week of content, and strength for the toil of the morrow, but a Sabbath profaned, whate’er be gained, is a certain forerunner of sorrow.”
