Midweek Discussion Group on Zoom

Zoom icon

The Midweek Discussion Group meeting via Zoom on Wednesday evenings are now underway.

The sessions start with a general welcome chat to hear how everyone is getting on, then some discussion often centred around a Bible passage, with a short time of prayer at the end.  Everyone will be considered to be fully present if they have signed in, but there is no need to say or share anything.  You can spend the whole time ‘mute’ if you wish!

There are the usual protocols about confidentiality, as anything shared must be respected as being confidential to the group. All are welcome, but if inviting others please contact Anthony first.

The current schedule is as follows:

  • 9 June                  Gifts of the Holy Spirit (1)            Wisdom
  • 16 June                Gifts of the Holy Spirit (2)            Understanding
  • 23 June                Gifts of the Holy Spirit (3)            Counsel    
  • 30 June                Gifts of the Holy Spirit (4)            Fortitude
  • 7 July                      –
  • 14 July                    Gifts of the Holy Spirit (5)            Knowledge
  • 21 July                 Gifts of the Holy Spirit (6)            Piety/Fear of the Lord
  • 28 July                 Evening Prayer
  • 4 August                 Introduction to Joshua – the issue of Violence in the Old Testament

Do keep the ideas coming about topics that you would like to consider.

Sign is at 19.55 hrs and the sessions end at 9.30pm sharp.  The Zoom invitation is sent a few days beforehand, usually with some background material.

Strawberry Cream Tea Poster

The Strawberry Cream Tea in support of Christian Aid has been rescheduled for Saturday 31st July, 3pm-5pm.

Win a hamper of goodies in our raffle!

Christian Aid Week took place from 10th to 16th May. The 2021 appeal focuses on the impact of the climate crisis on those who live in poverty.

Thank you to everyone who donated to Christian Aid in May. We have already raised over £1,300 (including gift aid) through the Little Gaddesden online e-envelope and cash collections. We have a fundraising target of £1,500 for 2021 and are hoping to reach this through the proceeds from the Strawberry Cream Tea.

The e-envelope will remain open for donations until the beginning of August (extended from the end of June). Click on the logo or the following link:
