Lent Course

Lent Programme 2019
  • Last Year’s programme for the Lent Course was be based around: The Book “Life Balance”, available  in St Andrew’s Church. Reuben writes: The course is following the Lent Book, ‘Life Balance’ by Robert Warren and Sue Mayfield. Our church community has many who are living increasingly hectic lives and so it felt right to Graham and I to spend some time over Lent praying and studying God’s word together with respect to how we can order our lives to honour God and thus also receive his blessing for our lives and families.

  • We Still have plenty of copies of the work book, and these can be found at the back of both churches or enquire to Cally Barnes at our Bookshop or to the wardens as we may still hold copies. 

  • We will use the Pilgrim Course based on the Eucharist as our study guide – Copies of books are on order and will be available. Some people may already have a copy

  • We will be in the Buckland Chapel for the Tuesday evening events, timings and structure to be the same as previous years.

     

 

The format of the sessions is:

Welcome & Feedback, Group Exercise, 15 min Talk, Discussion, Suggestions, Meditation.

There will be refreshments served at the beginning, and the evening will include worship.

There will also be refreshments served after the Ash Wednesday service in church on Wednesday March 6th.
