Transforming Work Study day - 29th April 2017

posted 13 Apr 2017, 01:29 by St Peter Woking

  • Does the Bible have any significance for the everyday issues of living in our families, society and the workplace?
  • How can we connect our faith with the realities of life as we encounter them?

Taking examples from specific texts and principles from Scripture as a whole, this Study Day is an opportunity to reflect on how to apply the Bible more holistically in our daily lives in the 21st Century. This interactive Day will take place at:

The Gold Project, Stockton House, Stockton Avenue, Fleet GU51 4NS

Timings: 10.00am (registration and coffee from 9.45am) to 3.45pm with a light lunch and refreshments provided during the day.
