Churches Together in Britian (CTBI) would like to invite you to an event we are organizing in partnership with the St.Philip’s Centre in Leicester on the subject of “Contemporary Hindu-Christian relations”, on Thursday 6th June 2019. This is part of the “Immersion Programme” in Inter Faith Relations offered to our member churches, via the Churches’ Forum for Inter-Religious Relations.

The event will include opportunities for dialogue with Hindus and also time for Christians to explore challenging issues such as “idolatry” and “freedom of religion”. We will begin at 10.00 (registrations from 09.30), ending at 16.30, with lunch provided. CTBI will be subsidizing this event however we would be pleased to receive a donation of £35 per person.

There are 30 places available. To ensure that there is a good ecumenical mix at the event we are restricting the number of tickets to one per member church until the 8th March, after that we will be happy for additional places to be booked for anyone in your church networks.

A deeply moving and captivating performance for your church for Lent and Easter 2019.

Springs Dance Company is delighted to be returning with its much sought after and highly praised production Bread of Life, for churches, cathedrals, festivals and schools. A reflection on the last supper, Bread of Life celebrates the meal of bread and wine with Jesus, the ever present King. This Lent and Easter rediscover the living, breathing Bread of Life, through this stirring depiction of how God is building a community of love with Jesus himself at the centre.

“A brilliant show that all the family can enjoy. Speaks to all ages about the love of God and how Jesus reaches out to all.”

“It is difficult to put 'Bread of Life' into words. Profound. Beautiful. Moving. Incredible theology of grace and the ever watchful love of Jesus. Transformative and powerful. How attractive is Jesus. Thank you.”

Audience Feedback from Bread of Life

Springs would love to hear from anyone interested in hosting a performance of Bread of Life.
