Lent & Holy Week

During the period of Lent we will be holding regular services, Lent Lunches, Compline and running our Lent Course ‘Attitudes to Life’ twice a week.   Please see below for more details.

The Lent Course this year is called ‘Life Attitudes’ and it’s a 5 session course on the Beatitudes.  The Beatitudes are the sayings of Jesus which begin with ‘blessed are the poor’ and they encapsulate the teachings and life of Jesus. It’s a chance to think and discuss the values Jesus had and how they affect our own lives. The course will run on Tuesday evenings at 8pm in the vicarage and on Thursday afternoons at 2pm in North Lynn Methodist Church. The first session is Tuesday 7th March and Thursday 9th March. Everybody is welcome.
