These meetings are open to all comers and are usually held on the first Wednesday of each month from 7.00pm to 8.30pm at the New Rectory in
Cowley (post code for sat/nav:“GL53 9NJ”).
We start with a 10-minute Bible-based presentation to generate some discussion about how to live out our faith in the complexities of the modern world. Our meetings open and close in prayer.
