What's on

Parish Lent Course

Every Tuesday at for 1 hour, 30 mins
The Vicarage

This year our parish Lent Course will be based on the book “Wayfaring” by Margaret Silf. (ISBN 978-0- 232-52403-1)

The publishers describe it in this way: Wayfaring invites us to make our own journey of prayer and lived experience alongside Jesus, from his birth, through his earthly ministry, suffering and death, and into resurrected life. Journeys are made very simply; by placing one foot in front of the other.

As we journey, Wayfaring enables us to reflect, step by step, on what the Gospel story means for us.

The sessions will be led by different members of the authorized ministers team, and they will be held on Tuesday afternoons in Lent from 3 - 4.30 pm on 28th Feb, 7th, 14th, 21st, & 28th March.
