WHEN RAIN FALLS LIKE LEAD – CANCELLED

When Rain Falls Like Lead - 5th April 2014 at The Hub

UPDATE: Sadly, due to illness, Andy Percey has had to pull out of the event so sadly it’s been CANCELLED.

Andy Percey is a Minister and author who has just had a book published – “When Rain Falls Like Lead” – which considers the subject of suffering; why people suffer and where God is in our suffering. This is a wonderfully written and very accessible theological reflection on some of the biggest and most commonly asked questions in our society.
