A church with a heart for the community


Grasping the Nettle


Dear Friend of GTN,


I am delighted to bring you our latest newsletter which, as you will see, reflects increasing activity and heightened profile for the work of GTN.


In the newsletter you will find:


  • Reports on the impact in various parts of the country made by the visit of astronomer Dr Guy Consolmagno
  • Recent media profile for GTN in national newspapers, radio and television
  • The response of schools to the science/faith agenda
  • The latest news of GTN
  • Informative and provocative(?) Christmas related articles
  • And much more!


Please not only read the newsletter for your own encouragement but please share it with friends and contacts in your church and beyond. 


We would love to hear your response to what you read. You can be in touch via office@graspingthenettle.org


Might I take this opportunity on behalf of all at GTN to wish you a happy and blessed Christmas time.

Very Rev Dr Angus Morrison
Chair, Grasping the Nettle Initiative
