Alton Webteam: April 2016
The Parish of the Resurrection in Alton is holding Topical Discussion Evenings to help us gain a better understanding of topical ethical issues. Each has informed input by a person able to lead with knowledge and understanding of the Biblical and Christian perspectives involved, but the purpose is not to present clear cut opinions.
Thursday 21 April: War and Peace, led by Rev Tyrone Power
Thursday 5 May: Human Sexuality, led by Rev Andrew Micklefield and Rev Keith Underhill
Thursday 24 May: What about the world and its environment? led by Rev Gordon Randall
Thursday 6 & 13 June: Faith and Science — are they separate or do they work together? led by Mr Ian Power, Professor Rich Curry, Dr Tim Woolman
Wednesday 6 July: assisted Dying and Euthanasia, led by Rt. Revd Christopher Herbert, formerly Bishop of St Albans.
Each of these is held in St Lawrence Church 7.30 — 9pm., and is open to Alton Methodists.
Also in their School of Discipleship Programme are four Tuesday evening sessions in the Autumn Term on Praying Creatively, followed by an Advent Book Study in the Winter Term.
Parish Time with God is a 45 minute prayer time once a month throughout the year, in various churches, at different times of day, and using varied approaches to prayer.
