Calling all book lovers! We are starting an evening book group (provisionally planned for the first Thursday of every month, starting 5th November). As a church family we are all at different points in our faith journey and the aim of the book group is to discuss works which support, enrich, and sometimes challenge our faith outside of our weekly services.
Our first title will be Ben Lindsay’s We Need To Talk About Race: Understanding the Black Experience in White Majority Churches, which has been called “essential reading” by Justin Welby.
Laura Taylor and Adam Smith have volunteered to take the reins and in order to get up and running we would like anyone who is interested to please email firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can have a good idea of numbers and begin planning the logistics. If this is your first book group, don’t worry, we will be sharing some top tips and thought-starters with you to get you started and aid your reading.
During this troubled time for the high street, please do consider purchasing a copy from local booksellers Canaan Christian Ministries in Staines here or through Waterstones in Twickenham (who will be able to order a copy for you.) If you prefer reading an ebook, do consider using Amazon Smile to make a small donation to the church. If you have any questions at all, please do contact us and we look forward to reading with you!
