LIFE/EXPLORED: What’s the best gift God could give you?

Life Explored is an informal and relaxed course for anyone who wants to find true contentment in life.

Starts Thursday, 11th January, 7.15pm and will run for 7 consecutive weeks at the Rectory, 3 Bateman Rd, East Leake, LE12 6LN

The evening begins with cheese and wine. The course is a mix of videos and live input.

You don’t need to know anything about the Bible, you won’t be asked to pray or sing. You can ask any question you like, or you can just sit and listen.
