The Parish of Kidlington with Hampton Poyle
'For Everything a Season'
Theology through the church year
Sundays, 11:30-noon, St Mary's Church, Kidlington
Perhaps you have noticed the changes of the seasons and wondered why they matter. Perhaps you have questions about the themes and readings. Perhaps you are not very familiar with church seasons and would like to learn more.
These coffee talks will offer a chance to explore the church year in more depth, with a 20 minute talk followed by 10 minutes of discussion. We will focus both on the practices and customs of each season, and also what these teach us about God and our faith. The talks are the first in a series of three: in the second year there will be talks on doctrine (what we believe); the third year on understanding Scripture.
Who?The talks will be given by Revd Dr Laura Biron-Scott. They are open to all and you can simply turn up.
Where?St Mary's Church, Kidlington, OX5 2AZ.
