Plenty to think about! Some themes will be picked up in the coming weeks and months.

Our third phase of Discipleship, ‘Outward to the World’, is to be launched at the Benefice Service on 29th October at Hethe Church. This will focus on growing in compassion for those in need and becoming more active in promoting justice and kingdom values.

Advent Groups will also give opportunities to mull over related issues (advertised elsewhere).
