AM: ‘Live’ in the building @ 10.30am
PM: Zoom @ 4.30pm. Message me for a link to join us.

Alresford (pronounced Allsford) is a beautiful Georgian Town which for many centuries was a prosperous wool town. Old Alresford is mentioned in the Domesday Book but the present town of New Alresford did not come into existence much before 1200 at the time when the Great Weir was being built to create Old Alresford Pond as a fish pond for the Bishop’s Palace at Bishop’s Sutton and a reservoir for the mills along the Itchen.
The colour-washed Georgian houses you see today rose from the ashes of great fires in the 17th Century but many retain their original 13th century cellars.
Now the home of the Watercress Line steam railway, so called because of its association with watercress farming, in what is now known as the UK’s capital of watercress. The town hosts the annual Watercress Festival in May attracting thousands of visitors each year.
Selected as the No 1 Best Place to live in the Countryside by The Sunday Times and Voted Country Life’s ‘Favourite Market Town’ in the south-east its specialist shops selling antiques, gifts, food, clothes for all ages, antiquarian books, pictures, china and crafts are a year round attraction.
Alresford is the perfect place for strolling and there is plenty to please the eye – The Fulling Mill and Eel House along the riverside walk, St. John’s Parish Church, the Millennium Trail and Old Alresford Pond, created by Bishop de Lucy, Bishop of Winchester, in the 12th century. Close by is Hinton Ampner House & Garden.

DATE FOR THE DIARY: ‘The Net’

DATE FOR THE DIARY: ‘The Net’ (for Men) ONLINE Easter Special – Face-to-Face with ‘Bob the builder’

Speakers Corner in Hyde Park, London is a unique place, it is an area where open-air public speaking, debate, and discussion is permitted on any subject within the law. The topics can vary from the profound to the hilarious, and you will often find witty orators who can talk eloquently on important contemporary issues, with a pinch of humour.
The audience is free to join in too and the regular hecklers and supporters are part of what makes the atmosphere of the Corner so unique and interesting. Even if you do not feel like piping up yourself it is always interesting to listen in to what is being said around you.
Bob* is there most Sunday afternoons, he is often circled by a group of Muslims and it can feel quite intimidating, but that Bob seems to revel in it. Come and find out why ..

Bob will share about his faith, his experience of Speakers Corner and also a, ‘top ten things you should know about Islam’ and we will finish with Q&A.

Date: Tuesday 30th March
Time: 8.00pm to 9.30pm
