321 is an informal four-week course during May. It's for anyone who wants to get a feel for what the Christian faith is all about.

It's completely free and you don't need to know anything about the Bbile. You can ask any question you like, or you can just sit and listen.

Coffee and cake (or alternative lighter refreshments) are provided.

Contact Tom to find out more or sign up HERE.
