Autumn Small Groups 2018

Small Groups are a great way to get to know people and to grow in faith. Groups meet for just a few weeks to explore a specific topic.  Each term (Autumn, Winter, Spring) you can sign up for a new group, and learn new things.

Please use this form to Sign Up for Autumn 2018 Groups.

God Talk

Two evenings (come to one or both) of ‘no agenda’ conversation about God at All Saints, Waltham.

Tuesday, 18 September (7 – 8.30 pm) — God Talk for Grownups
We’ll have wine & nibbles and some conversation starters. You come with questions, challenges, ideas.

Tuesday, 25 September (7 – 8.30 pm) — God Talk for Kids
This one is really for adults who have kids (or Grandkids) who ask awkward questions. Our goal is not to give you answers, but to help you feel more confident in managing the conversations. We’ll have wine, nibbles, and resources. You come with kids’ questions, challenges & ideas.

Accidental Saints

“Sometimes the fact that there is nothing about you that makes you the right person to do something is exactly what God is looking for..”

— Nadia Bolz Weber, Accidental Saints

The divide between saint and sinner is a whole lot messier than we like to think. This autumn we’ll let Nadia Bolz Weber help us find Saints in all the wrong places, and see what God’s doing in our own mixed-up lives.

Tuesday mornings at 10 am — Oct 2, 9 & 16, All Saints Waltham Church Hall.
or
Thursday evenings at 7.30 pm – Oct 4, 11, 18, St Matthew’s, New Waltham

Art Workshops

Budding Picasso? Can’t draw a line? It doesn’t matter which. This community art project is for everyone. You are welcome to come to one workshop or all three. Abby Turner will lead us as we play around with colour, ideas and emotions (and art supplies!).

This is part of our Accidental Saints project, as we celebrate the good in the people around us.

Saturday afternoons at 3.30 pm — Oct 6, 13, 20, St Matthew’s, New Waltham

Experience Advent

Advent is as counter-cultural as it gets. While the world starts Christmas earlier each year, the church says, ‘Wait. We need a bit of quiet first. Christmas is coming, but not yet.’  But how on earth do you find peace in the chaos of December?

Experience Advent invites you into a paradox: by giving up a bit of time for Advent, you’ll get more time back to enjoy the wonder of Christmas.

The time of meetings is yet to be set — so if you think you’d like to join in, let us know now what’s best for you. The sign up form gives you a chance to suggest times.

Don’t forget to Sign Up for Autumn Groups so we can make enough cake…
