Discovering Christ

Discovering Christ is for everyone aged 18 and up who is curious about the meaning of life. Whether you go to church faithfully every Sunday – or haven’t been to church in years – we welcome you. Over the course of 7 weeks we’ll serve you a delicious, catered dinner and then you’ll hear an interesting and thought-provoking talk that is designed to explore the meaning and purpose of your life. After each talk, you’ll get a chance to share your thoughts in a small group. You can talk as much or as little as you want, and it’s all done in a warm, friendly, judgement-free environment! Beginning on September 26, 2018. Find out more about this free event and register at www.stjamesmanchester.org/discoveringChrist.
