Discussion Groups

February 20th, 2017

Starting in March – Discussion Groups.

In March, we are planning some discussion groups for the people associated with St Giles’. The intention of these groups is to give people a chance to talk through some of the significant events in their lives. There are to be a number of different groups and the leaders of these groups will be:

Sian Gronlie (sian.gronlie@st-annes.ox.ac.uk)

Hannah Smith (hannah.smith123@outlook.com)

Tim Myatt (tim.myatt@wolfson.oxon.org)

David Longrigg (djflong@icloud.com)

Tom Albinson (tomalbinson@gmail.com)

Please contact one of them if you would like to join in the group they are looking after.

These groups should be a great opportunity to get to know each other better and share how our faith affects the way we view life and the issues we face.

Yours,

Andrew.
