Oakwood Church Book Club is for those who are interested in books, theology, faith and talking.
Working with LCI, the Leeds Church Institute, we’re bringing opportunities to discuss books relating to specific issues, or of particular personal interest.
What happens… someone is passionate about a book; we hear from that individual about the book and conversation flows. Some have read the book and contribute, others engage with the ideas, others are inspired to go away and read it.
There is usually buy a copy of each book to be discussed, for the church library. Please feel free to browse and borrow from the bookshelves at the back of the Sanctuary.
You don’t have to read the book before coming along to a Book Club meeting.
We usually meet in the Sanctuary at Oakwood Church from 19.30 to 21.00 on the third Tuesday of each month. Please check the Oakwood Church Calendar before travelling.
Do you have a book that has made a difference to your faith – one that you would like to share? If so please:
