Lent Lunches: Lent Learning

church houseLent lunches will take place on Fridays commencing on Friday 16th February at 12.30 for 1.00 p.m. All will be in Church House EXCEPT on 23rd February, when the venue will be STEPS. They will consist of a choice of home made soups plus bread and cheese and tea/coffee. Money raised will go to Christian Aid.   There is no need to book - just turn up. Donate what you can.

The lunch will be followed by an optional Lent course on St John’s Gospel, using the themes of Gift, Change, Bread, Light, Life and Leaving. There will be an evening course for those who can’t make it in the day time. Keep your eyes open for the dates of these.

Live lentIn our churches we will using booklets called #LiveLent 2018 – Let your Light Shine.

They take you on a six week discipleship journey through the Gospel of John, exploring what it means to be a witness.

For each day from Ash Wednesday to Easter Day there is a short reading, a pause for reflection and prayer, and an idea for a simple action that will enable the light of Jesus to shine through our everyday lives. For those of you who used the #Godwithus booklets at Christmas, they are very similar.

Booklets will cost £2.50. Please sign the list in the back of church so we know how many to order. For those of you more technically minded there will be an opportunity to sign up for the daily reflections by mobile phone or email and also a #LiveLent app on the Church of England website: www.churchofengland.org.
