Alton Webteam: January 2018
1. The Mystery of Everything, written by Hilary Brand is a Lent course based on the film 'The Theory of Everything'

28th Feb (watching the film)
7th , 14th, 21st, 28th March — Group discussion
The course uses film clips, Biblical study and group discussion to "explore ways in which the mysteries of the universe and of everyday life — and the acceptance that we have more questions than answers — can reinvigorate our faith and spiritual journey."
Further details and copies of the book available at: https://www.amazon.co.uk It is not essential to have a copy of the book!
