Space to think

Life is complicated, and faith isn’t about making it less complicated, but living with greater wisdom in the midst of uncertainty.

We offer space for reflection and discussion, for ponderers and wonderers. Whether you’re into knotty philosophical debate, prefer discussing your faith and the bible in small groups, or are a teenager wanting to explore who you are and what you might do with your life there is a thinking space to welcome you.

Below are some of the thinking spaces you can be part of in Redlands Parish Church.

The church House Group meets once a month outside Lent, and once a week during Lent. We usually meet at the home of Alan and Shelagh Tonkyn, from 8-10pm, typically on the first Tuesday of the month.  In Lent, an additional daytime Lent group is also organised, led by two members of the regular House Group.

The Group’s discussions are Bible-based, but often make use of courses such as the York, Emmaus and Pilgrim courses.  Recent discussions have focused on the post-Easter church, as shown in Acts, ch.s 1-3, on Jesus’s parables and healings, and on aspects of St John’s gospel. By means of challenging discussion questions, we try to relate what we are reading in the Bible to our own church and Christian lives.
