Spiritual Perspectives on the Pandemic

Organised by Churches Together in Balsall and Berkswell

A series of 5 talks by different speakers on Mar 5, 12, 19, 26 and 2 April

These Talks and Discussions have been developed jointly by the six churches in Churches Together in Balsall and Berkswell. They are held in the Methodist Church Hall, Station Road, Balsall Common CV7 7EE on Saturday mornings of Lent. The first of the talks will be held on Saturday 5 March 2022. All are welcome – whether attending a church or not.

Because of the pandemic we have reorganised how these take place. We will open at 9 when Tea/Coffee and Danish Pastries will be available and the talk will start at 9 15 am. After the talks the meeting is thrown open for discussion, and a Question and Answer session ensues. We aim to finish by 10/10 15 am The discussions will be chaired by Revd Mark Bratton, Moderator of Churches Together in Balsall and Berkswell.

We welcome a donation to cover expenses and the surplus after deduction of costs will go to UNICEF’s appeal for vaccines in the developing world.

So why not put these dates in your diary and come along and enjoy the discussion. You will be very welcome. If you would like full details as to speakers and subjects please email Claire and she will send it to you.
