Church Clubs & Groups Meeting in May 2017
Walking Club
The walking club like to get out and walk places roughly once a month through the year.

For the second walk of 2017 Frank Tracy has kindly offered to lead the group on a talk/walk tour of the Glendalough monastic sites on Saturday 17th June. They will meet up at the Glendalough Hotel at 10:30 for coffee followed by 11 o’clock start. Although there are quite a few sites to be visited the distance to be covered is not great and the walk should conclude (including a break for lunch) at 4pm.

Please make contact with Marcus McInerney at email hidden; JavaScript is required if you’d like to join them for this or future walks or would just like more information.

Facilitator – Marcus McInerney
Book Club
The Book Club meets on the last Wednesday of the month (28th June in this case) at 8pm in the vestry of the church.
This month they are reading Embers by Sandor Marai.

The club greatly enjoys welcoming new members.

Facilitator – Jennifer Flegg

Theatre Club
Patrick Rogers has initiated a theatre club for congregation members who might like to go to the theatre offering to organise tickets and meeting interested people for something to eat ahead of a show. This month, they will attend the matinee performance of No’s Knife at the Abbey Theatre on Saturday 17th June. The performance is a selection of Samuel Beckett’s Texts for Nothing Conceived and performed by Lisa Dwan. Filled with piercing insight, rage, wit and humour, No’s Knife is an extraordinary journey into the heart of Beckett, unlocking his contemporary relevance to gender, identity and the human condition. It is an invitation to look at ourselves, and to ask who, or whom, am I?

If you are interested in joining him or hearing more about events as they are arranged, do make contact by e-mailing email hidden; JavaScript is required

Facilitator – Patrick Rogers

Film Club
The Film Club meets in the Lantern Centre on Synge Street on the first Wednesday of the month (in this case 7th June) where they enjoy watching a film with good company and a cup of tea. 7.15pm for a prompt 7.30pm start.

This month they will watch Le Quattro Volte, an idiosyncratic and amazing film by Michelangelo Frammartino, nearly every shot contains a revelation, sneaky or overt, cosmic or mundane — It is set in remote valley in the southern Italian region of Calabria and is told in four chapters — “The Four Times” of the title. Told through the events surrounding an old man, a young goat, a tree and a batch of charcoal. Only at the end do we grasp the epic scope and lyrical depth of what we have seen. A film told without dialogue it becomes a meditation on life and of living.

Facilitator – Aubrey Flegg

The church have published two volumes of all issues of Oscailt published in 2005 and 2006. These are available from the church directly for €15 each.

The church has also recently unveiled a new greeting card featuring a sketch of the church by longtime congregation member George McCaw. This can be purchased in the church after service or online.

The cards, as well as other books of sermons and childrens stories published by the church are available from the website and we take payment through Paypal.
