Tregadillett Ecumenical Advent Study Group will be meeting on the four Mondays from November 27th to December 18th inclusive from 7.30pm - 9.00pm. Our topic will be "So what are you waiting for?" Whether you are always in a hurry or have too much time on your hands, this course is for you, as
we explore a spiritual life that encourages us to be active in our own time, but always rooted in God's time too. Come and join us for all or as many sessions as you can. A warm welcome awaits.
