Learning for Life                                         

We run regular programmes to help participants develop their spirituality and knowledge of Christianity and its relevance for contemporary life.

Living the Questions

 In autumn 2013 we completed a two year cycle of Living the Questions. Over thirty people were involved in this course and there are plans to run it again in the future.

Eclipsing Empire

Lent 2014 we are running a similar programme looking at the life and thought of St Paul entitled Eclipsing Empire. Click here to download a leaflet with details about this course. There are plans to continue after Easter (email for details)

Common Ground

is an ecumenical study, reflection and discussion group meeting at Central Methodist Church, Glossop on the first Friday of the month with participants from several churches and traditions in Glossopdale. New people are always welcome. We meet at 12 noon with our packed lunches and then the session runs from 12.45 to 2.00pm.
