The Big Subject

Some subjects are big subjects! They involve some serious thought and, most of the time, there are no easy answers. The ‘Big Subject’ at St Mary’s considers questions which concern contemporary issues, the Bible and the Church. The ‘Big Subject’ is incorporated into an evening service (second Sunday of the month starting at 6.30 pm). The talk is preceded by a short act of worship and is followed by a time of discussion. The programme for 2017 is below.
