North Blackwater Parishes Ministry Team
Has your heart been
You might like to follow up the
celebration of Christmas by finding
out a little more about the Christian
faith and who is at the centre of it. If
so there is no better way than joining one of our
Pilgrim groups. There will be groups starting soon so let
us know if you are interested and we can let you know
when they are happening. Pilgrim comes in blocks of 6
sessions, each session lasts just over an hour. Going to
one session does not mean you are tied to going to the
others. If you stop coming for a while we will be
pleased to have you join us again at another time.
