WMC: May 2017
Tuesday Afternoon House Group
In April we concluded this year's York Lent Course Receiving Christ.
The group found this a very rewarding study and much discussion took place. We will be taking a further look at this study later. In Holy Week we visited St. Mary's Convent and Sister Phoebe accompanied us round the Stations of the Cross.
To end the month Keith talked to us on the Jack Reacher approach to Evangelism.
