Cheltenham: Young Women: God’s Calling (18th November)
‘I’m too young! You can’t mean me!’ Have you had that feeling that God is calling you but you think it can’t be true? He doesn’t call people like you. Maybe it’s because you think you’re not clever enough or holy enough? Come and talk about it on the 18th November when we are holding a day for young women to come and explore your vocation. The event will take place from 9.30am-4pm at Holy Trinity Church, Trinity Lane, Cheltenham, GL52 2NX.  Bishop Rachel of Gloucester will be our key speaker and champion for the day.  For more information and to book a place, please see here.
