    St David’s Lent Course 2016: "Turning to Christ"

    Our Lent course will loosely follow a ‘Pilgrim’ booklet, part of a new series of discipleship courses, with contribution by +Robert! The theme is Baptism; turning to Christ, Father and Spirit, rejecting Evil.

    There will be whole church prayer and listening to Scripture readings, also small group facilitated discussions based on two reflections. What will it cost? £5 for the booklet only (contains additional material) Wednesdays: 17 & 24 February; 2, 9, 16 & 30 March (last session in Eastertide) 7:15pm for 7:30pm start; tea & coffee served at 9pm end. At St David’s Church. See Tom or Christopher for further information. No need to sign up – all welcome!
