As part of its 1300 celebration year, Holy Trinity Westbury-on-Trym decided to launch 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 autumn.
Autumn Programme 2017
Talking our Faith
Saturday October 14th, 1.30pm – 4pm at Westbury Methodist Church
One aspect of living a Christian life which causes concern even for people who are good at showing their faith in action, is how tongue-tied we can be when given the chance to talk about our faith or to respond to the questions of others.The Revd Tina Hodgett is Evangelism Team Leader in the Diocese of Bath and Wells and will be sharing ideas and experience in order to help us talk about our faith more naturally and confidently.
Sacraments, Symbols & Ceremonies
Mondays November 6th, 13th and 20th from 11am to 12.30pm, repeated at 7.30pm, ending with Compline at Holy Trinity
What we do in church. Why do we do it? What does it mean? In these three sessions, Fr André, Canon Bruce Saunders and Canon John Pedlar will talk and answer questions.
Faith, Science & Reason
Saturday 9th December from 11am – 3.30pm at Westbury Methodist Church
Can religious faith, modern science and reason live together? Professor Peter Hampson, Research Fellow at Oxford University and Emeritus Professor of Psychology UWE, will help us explore what the debate is about and whether faith, science and reason can live together.
