Conversation Club is looking for volunteers

Have you ever thought that you would like to help refugees and asylum seekers, but didn’t know how? If you like meeting new people and enjoy a chat, Conversation Club Leeds wants to hear from you.

They’re a charity that provides a safe space for refugees and asylum seekers to socialise and practise speaking English, and they need volunteers for people to chat to and befriend for an hour or two at their twice-weekly meetings. You will need to have great people skills, lots of empathy and a good sense of humour, but you will get a lot in return!

Lent Course 2022: The Screwtape Letters

Next Thursday 24 March at 7.30 pm
Whitkirk Community Centre

This year’s Lent Course explores our lives and faith through C.S. Lewis’ classic book ‘The Screwtape Letters’. First published in 1941, this collection of letters from a senior devil to his nephew providing advice on leading his assigned human astray, is still witty, readable, and recognisable. Over six weeks we’re reading passages from the book alongside scripture, and discussing and learning together.

You do not need to have read the whole book beforehand, and the relevant extracts will be provided for you at each session. However, we recommend you do read it if you can, if for no other reason than it’s a fantastic book! It is still in print today and is also easy to find second hand.
