A SHORT INTRODUCTION TO CHRISTIAN MYSTICISM
For details of the topics see above link.
Each Saturday between 13th February and 12th March, Churches Together meets for the Lent Breakfasts.
The Breakfasts are a series of Talks and Discussions that have been developed jointly by the six Churches Together in Balsall Common and Berkswell. They are held in the Methodist Church Hall on Saturday mornings of Lent.
The Breakfasts have established themselves in the village as a lively intelligent forum. Themes are taken for which straight forward answers are not available. The intention is to encourage people to think through the difficulties and so to strengthen a religious faith in one’s ordinary daily life. They are enjoyed equally by people who attend one of the churches, as well as by many others who are not church members.
Breakfast begins at 8.30 am and consists of cereals, croissants and tea or coffee. At 9.00 am, after a short introduction, the Guest Speaker introduces the theme for the session and usually speaks for about a quarter of an hour. The meeting is then thrown open for discussion, and a Question and Answer session ensues. The discussion will close no later than 9.45 am to allow the hall to be cleaned and cleared by 10.00 am.
There is a small charge of £2.00 for the breakfast and the surplus after deduction of costs will go to a mutually agreed charity.
