Lent course

Dates: from 5th March to 2nd April:
Every year during Lent (the weeks leading up to Easter) we meet together at St. John’s for a short 5 week course about some aspect of our faith. The evenings include some worship, an introductory talk and led discussion in groups. This year we will be using a course called “Lentwise” which will help us to think about the spiritual essentials we need for our journey through life with God. The course will run on Thursday evenings, 7.45 pm coffee for 8.00 pm start, from 5th March to 2nd April. It will be a real help if we know in advance if you intend to come (so we can get enough booklets etc) so please sign up on the lists which are available at both churches. As in previous years we will be joined by our friends from the Methodist churches.
Prior to the course we will start Lent with a service on Ash Wednesday (25th February) at St. Mary’s church at 8 pm, which includes the traditional imposition of ashes. At the end of the Lent course we will be having special meals in people’s homes followed by a service together at the Methodist church on Maundy Thursday (9th April).
