What can we find within ourselves to develop family and community life, respond to the environmental crises and achieve a sustainable world? We need respect, compassion, justice, simplicity, repentance and hope. This Lent course, written and produced by Revd David Osborne, explores these six themes and the ways we can allow God to develop these in us, drawing on insights. Course materials are £3 to cover photocopying - to book your place, please contact 01953 788227 or email [email protected]

Zoom video conferencing C/o Tacolneston Rectory NR16
Using conversation starters developed by the Church of England, this month together gives us the opportunity to talk about what makes life special for each of us, the reality of loss, how our culture deals with death, and our memories. Past groups have enjoyed chatting about questions, like 'What is your most memorable death in a film or a book?', 'What do you think about flowers at a funeral?' and ideas about 'bucket lists'. All you need to bring with you is yourself and something to drink!
This is available on Zoom online and by phone: Phone: 0203 966 3809 Online: Zoom meeting 819-938-4719 and whether or not your joining by phone or online the passcode is 349043
