REGAL ROBES 7th January

NEW GROUP 8th January
The Safe Space group is a supportive and reflective group for those who struggle and want to learn more about the Christian faith. This group meets fortnightly in the St Mary's Church Refectory at 2pm on a Monday. The next three groups are in the New Year and are scheduled for Monday January 8th, Monday January 22nd and Monday February 5th 2018. If you would like to join us for any or all of these meetings please contact felicityscroggie@gmail.com. You are very welcome.

Tea Talks for 2018
In St Mary's Kidlington at 3pm. Tea and cakes afterwards.
  • Sunday 14th January: Professor Dominic Scott talks on: "Why Plato hated democracy". Professor Scott is a Fellow of Lady Margaret Hall, and an expert on Plato. He will introduce us to the thoughts of a man who lived in ancient Athens, who saw his mentor Socrates, condemned to death by a democratically appointed jury. He raised questions still relevant today: How can a radical democracy allow for experts to have due influence on decision-making? How do you ward off the threat of populism, and with it, the descent into tyranny?
  • February 11th: James Hamilton will be talking on Thomas Gainsborough.
  • March 11th: David Meara will talk on "Anything can happen on a train".
More info from Yo Davies 0786 566 4451. Offers of cakes and helpers for the teas gratefully accepted.
