Understanding Our Identity – A Series of Themed Services

Dr Kevin Watson will be presenting six linked services on the last Sundays in September, October and November 2017, and in January, February and March 2018.  These will be loosely on the topic of “Understanding Our Identity”, so each will cover a different, though related subject area, and hopefully these will lead to some lively discussion over coffee after each of the services!
