Category: Church events
Posted by: stmadmin
Our Lent Groups will start this year immediately after Ash Wednesday, 17thFebruary, as follows:
 
*  Steve Tucker’s group – Thursdays, beginning 18th February 10 am
*  Alison Radford’s group – Saturdays, beginning 20th February 10 am (before the Zoom Coffee morning)
*  David and Jan Williams’ group – Mondays, beginning 22nd February 8pm
 
The first two groups will be following The Poet’s Gospel course and details can be found here.  After the death of his wife from Alzheimer’s disease, John Alan Davis decided to write a single ‘amalgamated’ gospel using a patchwork of material from Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.  This will be a chance to journey through Jesus’ ministry in that there are five weekly sessions to cover as a group and then a session for each day during Holy Week for individual reading.  The resources can be downloaded free from the Churches Together in Britain and Ireland website here:
 
The Williams’ group will be following the Living and Loving in Faith course.  The report on which the course is based can be found on the Church of England website click here. The course booklet is available from Church House Publishing here:.  Living in Love and Faith sets out to inspire people to think more deeply about what it means to be human and to live in love and faith with one another. It tackles the tough questions and the divisions among Christians about what it means to be holy in a society in which understandings and practices of gender, sexuality and marriage continue to change.
 
All three groups are online.  The Williams’ group use Skype and the other two groups use Zoom.
