Faithful Readers Book Club

Do you enjoy reading and discussing books? Socializing with other readers? Faithful Readers might suit your interests. We meet at 7:30 on the fourth Monday of every month (Sept – May, except December) to discuss a different book. And there are refreshments!  At the present time, membership in the book club is restricted to members or adherents at “Nelson, St. Stephen Tansley / New Church”.
Each month we’ll rate the book we discuss, and by next June we’ll have a winner to recommend to the congregation. Most of the books we choose are fiction, but we usually include one memoir or biography each year.

A list of past winners are listed below.
If you’d like more details, please contact Sheila Young (, Jennifer Brezina (, Sue Stephen ( or Janice Hatt (
