Purpose of the Lent course:

The purpose is not just studying the Bible but engaging with those whose lives were transformed. We will look at these Encounters with Jesus and see how they impact our own lives. We encourage you to become part of the narrative and allow God to speak to you through this time.Reflection:

During Lent we usually take time to REFLECT and search our soul. We allow God to reveal to us hidden things which he wants to address, things which may be acting as a barrier to us growing spiritually.


You can enter into this as much or as little as you like. You may wish to join a group just to listen to the talk and to have an opportunity to personally reflect. We encourage you to be as open and honest as you feel able. There will be an ‘Interactive Reflection’ and you (and others) may gain more by sharing within the group


Lent is a time for ‘penitence’ (showing sorrow for things we have done), absolution and expectation in the lead up to Easter. So join us for this course, be prepared for God’s renewal and expect to be changed, at least a little!
