What's on

Parish Lent Course

Every Friday at for 1 hour, 15 mins
St Mary de Crypt
St Mary de Crypt, Southgate Street Gloucester, GL1 1TP, United Kingdom

We will discuss our lent book for this year: Saying Yes to Life by Ruth Valerio. The book imaginatively draws on the Days of Creation (Genesis 1), relating themes of light, water, land, the seasons, other creatures, humankind, Sabbath rest and resurrection hope to matters of environmental, ethical and social concern. You may like to come to Prayers for the City beforehand or simply join in the discussion.

All are welcome, even if you can't make every week.
