Cafe Church resumes Wednesday 21st June, with the final session before the summer break on July 12th.


In these five remaining sessions we will continue with lectio divina, looking at Miranda Threfall-Hall's short course, based on her book How to Eat Bread: 21 Nourishing Ways To Read the Bible. 


Here's a link to a one minute introductory video to Miranda's course (which started life as a Lent course):


As usual we'll start promptly at 9.30am and finish at 10.30am. 


To join the meeting remotely click the Cafe Church button at the top of this page.


For those joining in at St John's we'll be in the Meeting Room - enter via Margaret's Office.

Prayer - Yancey.jpg

After two false starts, it with relief and a certain amount of chagrin that I can say that this project is ready. Over the next two weeks, there will be a series of quotes from the book on our FaceBook page and the Home page of the Website; the series will run through Lent.

Trained as a journalist, Philip Yancey has a knack of writing books that tackle questions of faith in ways that

are readable and absorbing. This book on Prayer is no exception; we benefit from a journalist’s tenacity to get to the heart of the matter and be able to talk plainly about what they found; his years as a thinking and committed Christian mean that we find we are joining a fellow traveler on the road, rather than an expert in theory.



You can buy the book and read it, new £8/used £4.

We have some copies in the church library available to borrow.

Each day in Lent, you will be able to listen to a reading from it,

posted on FaceBook and the Website.

The book is a good read even on a busy day, each chapter is broken into 5-10 minute sections that are worthwhile in themselves – I found it helpful to read the book like that whether busy or not, it gives time to savour the thought before moving on. It is a hugely helpful book by a popular author which I find myself going back to again and again as an encouragement and help in faith as much as in prayer.
