Lent Course 2021

Because we can’t get together physically I’m going to try and run our Lent course, using the Diocesan course based on the refreshed God for All vision, on the internet via Zoom.

It will be at 2.00 p.m. on Tuesdays 23rd February, 2nd, 9th, 16th and 23rd March. Each session will last an hour and I would ask that you have a Bible to hand if you are able to. You can join in by phone if you don’t have a computer or would find it easier.

The details for the first session are:
