What's On

CiA dates for 2018

CiA AGM, 8 February 2018, 7.45 pm, Salvation Army, West St Helen's Street

Everyone welcome to come and celebrate the work of the CiA through 2017.

Women's World Day of Prayer, 2 March 2017, services at 1.30 pm and 7.30 pm at Peachcroft Christian Centre.

This year the service has been prepared by the Christian women of Suriname and the subject is caring for God’s very good creation – an extremely relevant topic now as sea levels are rising and fish are being poisoned either by chemicals in rivers or microbeads and plastic packaging in the sea. The services will last for an hour and will be followed by refreshments.

CiA Lent Lectures, 'Let's Wait and See', Mondays 19 and 26 Feb, 19 and 26 March 2018, 7.30 pm, at Abingdon Baptist Church

This year Revd Dr Paul Goodliff will be leading a series of four lectures that explore the theme of 'waiting' using the visual arts and poetry. Each week there will be a lecture and contemplative prayer. In each lecture, a particular stream of the great Western spiritual tradition will be explored, a practice that enables waiting considered and, finally, the theme of the lecture reflected upon through some paintings.
Lecture 1: Waiting with Mary - seeing the annunciation: 19 Feb 2018
Lecture 2: Waiting with St Francis - seeing the baptism of Christ: 26 Feb 2018
Lecture 3: Waiting for the God of surprises - seeing the Damascus Road: 19 March
