Summer book club
Summer 2001 Book Club
This summer, we’d love to encourage everyone in our church family to read a good Christian book. We’ve found 6 for you to choose from. None of them are long. All of them will help you trust Jesus and live for him more.
Why not take a look at the choice below and sign up to read one of two of these great books? We’ll join together on Tuesday 14th Sept and Wednesday 22nd Sept to chat together about what we’ve learnt. Don’t worry, you won’t be asked lots of difficult questions or have to write a book review; it’s a book club, not an exam!
Churchsuite registration coming soon. In the mean time, order your preferred book of choice. Link to order in each section, you’ve got plenty of time!
