WHO ON EARTH IS GOD? It’s a good question and the title of a stimulating new book by
Methodist Minister Neil Richardson. You are invited to an evening with Neil, hosted by
Andrew Roberts to explore this vital question. The evening will feature reflections, conversation, input from Neil and time for questions. Ideal for those exploring faith, and
those wanting to sharpen their thinking – in particular their response to ‘new atheists’
like Richard Dawkins. Evenings are being held at:
Wolverhampton University, Arena Theatre, Tuesday 10 March, 5.30 to 7pm.
Bayston Hill Methodist Church, Shrewsbury, Thursday 16 April, 7.30 to 9pm.
Selly oak Methodist Church, Tuesday 28 April, 7.30 to 9pm.
New Room, Bristol, Thursday 21st May. 7.30 to 9pm.
Admission. £5 per person payable in cash or by cheque at the venue. Places do need to
be booked in advance. To book, email Andrew Roberts
[email protected] or write to him C/O The Wolverhampton and Shrewsbury District Office, Beckminster Methodist Church, Birches Barn Road, Wolverhampton,
WV3 7BQ.
