Burns Night 25th Jan 2019

7.30pm Friday 25th January - everybody is welcome!
        
An evening of quizzes, tasty Scottish food & drink (English food too if Haggis isn’t for you!) with a guest speaker Alex Bedford all the way from Scotland:

On a wet Saturday afternoon, you might come across Alex Bedford in Buchanan Street in Glasgow preaching about Jesus to passers by - most of whom give him a wide birth. He doesn't blame them: he says he'd have done the same years ago. As a young daredevil motorcyclist, he'd have dismissed street preachers as religious cranks.


"Religion was for the elderly, whom I imagined were collecting points before they popped their clogs or people who needed a crutch in life," he says cheerfully. "Or just weird, odd people. I could never relate to people like that. My life was too busy."
But Alex is now spreading the word with the same passion with which he tackled his racing years and subsequent career as a successful businessman. Yes, he's a former British motorcycling champion, having raced all over the world.
He's got guts - and you need them in spades in the streets of Glasgow. "Nobody's thumped me yet," he grins. The thing about Alex Bedford is that he is so utterly normal - if you discount a past habit of decorating the tarmac with your body parts at speed.
Alex is well-known to Wellfield Church. He spoke at a weekend away for us, and at a memorable evening a couple of years ago when he talked about his life story, how he came to be a Christian. We look forward to having him as a guest speaker on Burns' Night!
