New PCN Group launches in East Shropshire
People living in the West Midlands will soon have more choice when looking for local group of progressive Christians
The seeds of this group were sown when John Churcher gave a talk to the local C of E Deanery Synod in July of last year, followed next day by a workshop. For some people these occasions provided a wonderful freedom to be able to ask questions which they had been nervous of asking before, for others the new thinking was challenging. There was uncertainty as to how to take things forward but ultimately it was the new vicar who suggested the formation of a local group of PCN.
THE FIRST MEETING OF THIS NEW GROUP will take place on Monday, 18 July 2011 at 7.00p.m. for 7.30 in St Chad’s Church, Boningale, WV7 3BY. Boningale is a tiny village near to Albrighton on the Eastern boundary of Shropshire and the origins of the church go back to Norman times.
Anyone interested in exploring progressive Christianity will be welcome at the meeting, you do not have to be a member of PCN. Don’t be worried about having to “make a contribution”, you may just like to enjoy the fellowship of others in a quiet, country church. It would be helpful, but not absolutely necessary, if anyone wishing to come could contact David Cotterell. The present intention is that the group should meet monthly but this will be for the group to decide.
