CONNECT GROUP – SATURDAY 30th SEPTEMBER 7:30pm
Saturday 30th September, 7.30pm Celebrating the 500th Anniversary of Martin Luther & 95 Theses (with jokes).  With a feeling of Horrible Histories and Monty Python, A Monk’s Tale helps the audience understand the unfamiliar medieval mindset, and exactly what Luther was trying to do with his 95 Theses, which sparked one of the most significant movements in history: the Reformation.  Chertsey Street Baptist church is hosting the Guildford leg of this tour.  Tickets are £5.  Further info on the show at www.amonkstale.net/about. If you'd like to join us for the evening, please let Helen know asap via the office so she can get tickets.

AUTUMN TERM COURSE

AUTUMN TERM COURSE
AUTUMN TERM COURSE
In the Autumn, we are joining with Burpham Church, Christchurch Guildford and St Peter's Bellfields to run a joint Theology 'Introducing the Bible' Course. This will be a 10 week course, on Thursday evenings, for anyone interested in developing their Bible knowledge, study and understanding. The evenings will be held at Burpham Church of the Holy Spirit starting on 21st September running through until 30th November. This is a four way partnership, and each church will take a turn in running each evening. We will watch a DVD together with a talk from a theological teacher at St Mellitus College (ie Dr Graham Tomlin, Dr Andy Emerton etc), then meet in our church study groups to discuss the issues that we have just heard. The cost of the course is £10 per person for 10 weeks - that's right, £1 per evening - which will include drinks, cake, the talks and materials. Please take a form & sign up to join us (hand forms to office).  Ideally we would like Small Groups to sign up to follow this course for the term.
