Last night saw the first talk in the Advent series of Faith on Draught. Building on the success of the talks held earlier this year Terry Mattinson came to the Swan With Two Necks pub in Chorley to speak on 'Faith in Action: Not just talkin''.
The bad weather meant numbers were slightly down, but 20 people still braved the elements to be both affirmed and challenged in how we as a people of faith can live out that faith in a modern and increasingly secular environment.
In many ways, this theme fitted perfectly with the idea behind Faith on Draught: to take what is largely considered as the 'The Church' out into the world and so allow more people to hear the Good News Christ came into the world to proclaim.
The next talk will take place on Wednesday 15th December at the Swan With Two Necks (Hollinshead St, Chorley Town Centre, PR7 1EP) again, starting 7:30 pm with a buffet available from 7 pm. This will be led by Father Andrew Unsworth who will speak on 'The Catholic Church and Inter-Religious Dialogue'.
The talk lasts about 20mins/half an hour and is followed by time for discussion over a drink. It is very informal and open to all.
