Write yourself into the story – 15 May

On May 15th we are running ‘Write yourself into the story’, an opportunity to enter the world of a Bible story and respond creatively by describing what you experience through your senses, who you meet, what they say, how you feel. This will be a personal response and everyone’s will be different. There will be no obligation to read anything out but there will be a chance to discuss the experience either in a group or privately and to pray. Run by Lesley Shatwell and Stella Wiseman, ‘Write yourself into the story’ will be held at St Mark’s at 7.30pm on Tuesday, May 15th. Call Stella on 07854426297 for further details.
