Jesmond St. Mary Partnership.

    Our vision is to be:

    A community of communities consisting of members whose Discipleship has its source in the Joy of the Gospel and who:

    •          Share the peace and joy of Christ
    •          Encourage others to a personal encounter with Him;
    •         Centre their lives in the spirituality, prayer and liturgy of the Church;
    •          Work together as equal partners in the Mission to promote the Kingdom of God, responding positively to all who are in need and being ready to reach out to other communities of all faiths and none;
    •          Are welcoming and life giving to all;
    •        Respond to opportunities for personal and group formation.

    Would you be interested in joining a theology reading group based at the Holy Name Church in Jesmond? Led by Professor Karen Kilby from Durham University, members would discuss a theological book each month, sometimes reading classics and sometimes more recent texts.

    The group would be aimed at people interested in reading and discussing theology but who have not formally studied the subject.

    While Karen would occasionally provide a little bit of background or some orientation for reading the texts, the basic format would be

    conversation so it would be a book group rather than a lecture series.
