Vineyard Socially Distant Book Club
We're setting up mini-book clubs to encourage connection with each other, while at the same time being inspired and encouraged by God! For the pilot scheme we're going to read "Chasing the Dragon" by Jackie Pullinger.
We've chosen this book because it's an exciting page-turner, with some really inspiring stories and challenging ideas. Because it's a classic, you may have already read it, but we think it's still going to be enjoyable and give God an opportunity to speak into our here-and-now lives.
And, because it is a bestseller that's been around for a while, there's a good chance people may have it on their shelves. However, even if you don't, it's easy to pick up a second-hand copy on Amazon or eBay. You can also get it for Kindle. The Amazon listing (for new, second-hand or Kindle) is here
HOW IT WILL WORK
We're going to put people into groups of 3-8 people with a facilitator. The facilitator will arrange when you'll meet and how you'll e-meet. They will also have a set of questions for discussion.
You will read a chapter and then have a virtual 'gathering' where you'll get to discuss it. We expect these sessions to last 20-30 mins, depending on how chatty you are! There will also be opportunity to pray for each other.
If you want to take part fill in the form below and get hold of a copy of the book.
We expect these to start the week beginning 6th of April, although there's no set timescale or requirement. Each mini-book club can set their own schedule.
