North Norfolk pastor launches book number 35
Local Baptist minister, counsellor and author Patrick Coghlan will be launching A Letter for Lent, his new Lent course at a book signing event at the ACT Centre on and November 4 and 5. Tony Rothe reports.
A letter for Lent is a six-session group Bible study course for use during Lent, which looks at Paul’s letter to the Colossians. In addition, there is a meditative personal Bible study course based on Paul’s letter to Philemon, to be used on the Monday to Friday of Holy Week.
The group Bible study course is an easy-to-follow, off-the-page resource, encouraging all the members of the group to participate in the discussion (including the sharing of personal testimony and life experience), and also in the prayer time. The application is both for the members of the group as individuals, but also collectively for the fellowships/congregations represented.
“This could be of particular interest to local church leaders who are in the process of considering what material to use for Lent 2018” said Patrick.
This is Patrick’s 35th published paperback book (including a selection of family novels and books about the Christian faith); and they will all be on display, and available to buy at the book signing.
Rev Coghlan, pictured right with his writing companion Hamley, has been pastor at Worstead Baptist Church since 2004, he is chaplain and counselling manager at Aylsham Care Trust and runs outreach ministries at local day centres and residential homes.
He launched his writing career seventeen years ago when his first book, entitled Anytime Chats With God, was accepted by a Christian publishing company, and the father-of-two has since gone on to publish titles ranging from horse-themed family novels, to a ‘Creating the Church at Home’ series for housebound elderly people and those living with dementia and their carers.
Also contributing to the event will be June Coghlan with her copper foil glass work and home-made produce, artist Bob Gay, and there will be a variety of other crafts, including quilting. The café will be open for refreshments and light meals.
The event will be at the ACT Centre, Aylsham, NR11 6YA on Saturday November 4 from 10-00am to 4-00pm; and Sunday November 5 from 2-00pm to 4-00pm. Free entry.
