Church of England Diocese of Gloucester Newnham

These are Lent & Easter events this year.

Lent Study Group (cancelled)

Every Wednesday at 10 a.m. for 1hr

High Street
Newnham
Gloucester

Our group this Lent will be led by Revd Joe and will focus on Archbishop Justin Welby's chosen Lent book for 2020, 'Saying Yes to Life' by Ruth Valerio.

'Saying Yes to Life lifts our focus from natural, everyday concerns to issues that are impacting millions of lives around the world. As people made in the image of God, we are entrusted to look after what he has created... Valerio imaginatively draws on the Days of Creation (Genesis 1) in relating themes of light, water, land, the seasons, other creatures, humankind, Sabbath rest and resurrection hope to matters of environmental, ethical and social concern' (from Archbishop Welby's foreword).

All are welcome - please contact Joe (01594 510165) for more details.
