Hear, question and explore faith in one of our group courses.
Living the Questions
Living the Questions begins again on Sunday 5 May with a new series of studies- Eclipsing the Empire: Paul Rome and the Kingdom of God. This is an open discussion group based around new DVD material encouraging people to bring their questions about the Christian faith and live into the answers. Dates for this series are: 5 May (at 12.30); 9 June; 16 June; 23 June; 30 June; 7 July; 21 July; All are welcome to come along. Course takes place in Austen Williams Room, 6 St Martin’s Place at 12.15. But please note first group on 5 May is a 12.30.
Living the Questions is an opportunity to question afresh the core issues of the Christian faith accompanied by a number of leading American theologians such as Marcus Borg and Walter Brueggeman. A twenty minute DVD featuring these theologians is followed by group discussions with others both pilgrims and skeptics. The course offers a chance to name and explore questions, share experiences and form a community for a stage of the journey.

Lunchbreak: A Theology of Everyday Things
From 2 May, our Thursday Lunch-break service continues in this second series of ten-week talks on the “theology of everyday things” for all those who work around St Martin’s during the week. Led by Revd Will Morris, the series examines the links between our faith, the bible, and the ordinary things we encounter during the week in central London.
This series will look at difficult situations that can arise in the workplace, “What happens if . . .”
The Cloak is St Martin’s network of small groups. St Martin’s has a diverse and growing congregation and seeks to live in the light of the welcoming and hospitable charism of St Martin, who shared his cloak with a beggar. A larger congregation challenges us to think creatively about how to nurture each other in our faith and thread our community life together. The Cloak seeks to offer members of the congregation the opportunity to join a small group for prayer, bible study, fellowship and supporting each other in turning our faith into action in the world.
We currently have four groups, Central, South, West and North. If you are interested in joining a group, please download a flyer or pick one up from church and return it to the church office. We can’t guarantee to find you something immediately, but we will do our best, and may be able to suggest a group which you could visit to see what happens there. As the network grows, more spaces will open up.
For more information about the groups, please contact Revd Clare Herbert on 020 7766 1143 and leave a message, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
