St. Alfred's Book Club

We are an informal group of men and women who enjoy reading and sharing ideas. We get together the 1st Wednesday at 10 a.m. in the Church Library and via Zoom . Our gatherings are very social and informal. Books are selected by the members, who also often volunteer to lead the discussion. Watch for announcements in the service Bulletins and in our electronic newsletter, The Banner. No dues, no bylaws, just interesting conversation – and – we continue to learn from our reading and one another!
