Sunday 3 March - Bishop Jo, Bishop of Dorking, at St James Abinger                
Bishop Jo, who Tony Berry considers to be 'an inspirational preacher'  will be joining us for a Benefice celebration of Holy Communion at St James Abinger  at 1030am. 

Tuesday 19 March and Tuesday 16 April - 'Vital Signs'  - a Bible Study Group led by Hilary Swift

Hilary Swift, the Benefice's Lay Reader, is leading a lively discussion in the Barn at the Plough Inn looking at the seven miracles or 'signs' that St John writes about in his gospel. Signs that point to who that seemingly ordinary carpenter from an obscure town in a corner of the Roman Empire really was.

Does this man who walked the dusty streets of Palestine 2,000 years ago have any relevance to us today?

Can his words really bring life to us in modern Britain?

You don’t need to be a churchgoer to come along.  The more active the discussion the better. Why not give it a try? You can be sure of a friendly welcome. 
Join us for our next lively discussion in the Barn at the Plough Inn, Coldharbour on Tuesday 19 March starting at 8pm, or on
Tuesday 16 April, starting at 8pm - there’s no need to book. Many thanks to Becky for providing the venue.
