Study Groups

Planning is underway for our “Eco-theology workshop series”
The series will be led by Graeme Garrett and Jan Morgan.  The style will be conversational and include journaling, spiritual practice, and a blog for participants to follow up at home. Input will draw on theology, biblical stories, literature, music, art etc. (but not lengthy ‘lectures’).  
There will be 7 sessions over a 14 week period, starting in late July.
Interested?  Which day and time will work for you?!
