==========================================

THE ISLAND SPIRITUALITY NETWORK STARTS ITS NEW 2019 PROGRAMME ON

SATURDAY 12 JANUARY 2019

IN ITS USUAL HOME

ST JOHN’S MILL

from 10am - 1pm

  We look forward to welcoming our guest speakers, Rev’d Steve and Rev’d Becky Ingrouille, and the theme for the morning will be

“The Language of Worship” –

different approaches to God

Steve and Becky are both ordained Methodist ministers and moved to the island from the Cheshire South Methodist circuit in 2016.  They share ministry as a team and have oversight for the Methodist churches in Onchan, Union Mills, Laxey, Abbeylands, Agneash and Baldrine.  

There is no set charge for ISN meetings though a suggested voluntary donation of £10 helps to defray our expenses.  However, no one is ever asked for money so please do not stay away for financial considerations.

 At the start of a new year, what better way to spend a Saturday morning than to gather together, sharing, reflecting and learning from one another.   We look forward to seeing you on the 12th and to renewing fellowship and friendship.
