8.  Do you find it difficult to get to grips with the book of Revelation? What’s the meaning of all that symbolism? How does it relate to us today? Join Fr Tim in the Church Room on the Tuesday 3rd October from 8.00-9.00pm for an informal look at how its themes and ideas have been represented over the centuries in art, architecture and music. It should be interesting and fun! Coffee and dessert will be supplied. If you’re interested, please drop him a quick line on This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
