CTKS will be hosting a 5 week Lent Series entitled 'A day in the life of a ....' on 5 consecutive Tuesday evenings at The Baptist Church in Keynsham High Street. The first is on 7th March, beginning at 7.30pm, with refreshments being served from 7.00pm.

We are seeking to stimulate and encourage the working out of our Christian faith, by hearing how people relate their faith to their work.

Five different people will briefly describe their job; and then, with suitably anonymous anecdotes, share what about their job challenges their faith, and how their faith supports and encourages them in their job.

The pattern for each evening will be:

7.30-7.45 – Worship

7.45-8.20 – Talk

8.20-8.35 – Questions

8.35-8.45 – Closing Reflection

Here is an outline of the series:

March 7th     -   A Computer Analyst

March 14th   -   A Doctor

March 21st   -   A Teacher

March 28th   -  A Farmer

April 4th        - A Town Clerk
