As part of its 1300 celebration year, Holy Trinity Westbury-on-Trym launched a new range of learning opportunities for adults (Church members and others) to help equip them for more effective Christian discipleship at work, in their personal relationships and in the community. A survey before Easter indicated the areas of interest and concern which people most wish to explore and their preferred timing and frequency of events. The Planning Group has taken all these factors into account in arranging an exciting programme for the Spring.
‘Being a Christian at Work’ is one of the issues highlighted in last year’s questionnaire. We’ve assembled a fascinating panel of people from a very wide range of working experience, ready to respond to questions about the ethics and other challenges of being a Christian in the working world. And then a few days later there’s the chance to get to grips with Mark’s Gospel and explore it from the inside.
To help us plan, please book your place as soon as possible by booking online at the links below or by downloading the booking form and returning it to the parish office.
