What is the Church for?
A 5-session course for small groups

Some groups are used to meeting for 90 minutes and others for 2 hours. Each of these sessions has been designed to last for 90 minutes, on the basis that groups who meet for 2 hours can play with the timing (longer discussions, coffee break, etc.) but those used to meeting for 90 mins may not want to do 2 hours instead.
