Alton Webteam: January 2017
This course based, on The King's Speech written by Hilary Brand will take place at Alton Methodist Church on Thursdays during Lent at 7.45pm, as detailed below:
2nd March A showing of the film
9th March The stuff of nightmares & the power of friendship
16th March Chasing the dream or fulfilling the calling
23rd March Pressing forward and breaking through
30th March Poisonous words and profane responses
6th April Eloquence for evil and stammering for good
The course uses film clips, Biblical study and group discussion to unpack themes which will help us to consider how as Christian disciples we can indeed "find our voice." Further details and copies of the book are available at: https://www.amazon.co.uk/d/Books/Finding-Voice-Course-Kings-SpeechHilary-Brand/0232528934
It is not essential to have a copy of the book! However, it would be helpful to know if you intend to come — so that we can plan to facilitate group discussion.
