Henley Sceptics and Believers Discussion Group

THE group will start its new season of evening meetings on Tuesday, November 22.

We will spend the evening exploring “Spiritual gifts — divine powers working in ordinary Christians?”.

Do we see such supernatural gifts in Christianity today? Can they be used to demonstrate the truth of the faith?

Until recent decades the church seemed to have largely shied away from these gifts but with the Pentecostal movement at the start of the 20th century and the Charismatic movement from the Sixties and Seventies they have returned to prominence, attracting some controversy.

We will discuss these issues with two great local speakers who both come to the subject with experience but reach different conclusions.

Stuart Colam is a Henley entrepreneur and a Christian. He believes God works through spiritual gifts today.

Neil Denham works in a bank in Henley and he used to be a Christian. He now believes that the phenomena surrounding spiritual gifts can have a natural explanation.

The main format of the evening will be discussion, both as a whole group and then round tables in a pub- style setting.

We warmly welcome new members, so please come along and get involved.

No background knowledge is required to contribute, to question, to listen or to give your views.

Do come in time to buy a drink and chat before the formal start at 8pm.

Meetings are held at the Salisbury Club in Queen Street, Henley, (7.45pm). Future dates are January 17, 2017, February 21, March 21, April 18 and May 16.
