Lent Courses 2021

This year we are pleased to be able to offer a number of Lent courses as below. These will all be offered via Zoom. Joining details will be made available in due course (though please note the need to pre-book for option 1). We look forward to welcoming you!


1. Creative Lent Course – Growing in the Wilderness”

Leader: Keith Whitehead
 

Thursdays at 7.30pm, beginning on 25 Feb 2021

Exploring more creative ways of connecting with God and scripture. The aim is to do and pray, rather than watch and read from a screen. A pack of materials will be provided but there will be some that you will have to provide yourselves (although you are likely to have most of these al- ready). The sessions will be messy, so you will need to be prepared for this!

Places limited to max of 10 people. To book your place, please contact Keith on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 249 0988 by 10 February 2021 to allow time for the packs of materials to put together and delivered in time to be quarantined prior to the start of the course.

3. Lectio Divina – Reading the Bible contemplatively

Leader:Kate Stowe

 

Fridays at 2.00pm beginning on 26 Feb 2021

Lectio Divina is a contemplative way of reading the Bible. It dates back to the early centuries of the Christian Church and was established as a monastic practice by Benedict in the 6th century. It is a way of praying the scriptures that leads us deeper into God’s word. We slow down. We read a short passage more than once. We chew it over slowly and careful- ly. We savour it. Scripture begins to speak to us in a new way. A lovely way to end the week.
