Pilgrim  - A course for the Christian Journey. We begin a new module this week on the Beatitudes.   The Beatitudes are a short but profoundly beautiful and influential collection of sayings by Jesus which sum up his teaching about what it means to live as a child of God’s kingdom.  Each of the 6 sessions includes reflecting on a reading from Scripture drawn from different parts of the Bible.  Open to all – you don’t need to have attended a previous module to join in this one. Tuesday evenings at St Peter’s – 9th,  16th, 30th May, 6th, 13th,  20th June, 7.00pm.

This is the 60th Anniversary of Christian Aid Week.  Can we help to make it the best?  Could you take part in a house to house collection?  Might you help in the collection at Tesco’s, South Shields on Friday 19th May?  Are you in training for the Bede’s Way Sponsored Walk on Saturday 24th June?  How else could you support Christian Aid this week?
