Join us for Lent and Easter

As well as our usual Sunday services at 9am and 10.30, you are welcome to join us at any of our special events.

Lent Groups

Tuesdays at 10am – a women’s group during Lent when we will be using a book by Paula Gooder looking at the women of Holy Week with bible study, discussion and prayer. You do not need to attend every week and are welcome to come to as many sessions as you wish. Contact us for more details.

Thursdays at 8pm – All are welcome to join us to study the Bible to learn some of the Christian disciplines which help us to draw closer to God during Lent, e.g. prayer, solitude, simplicity. There will be four sessions (using the book Celebration of Discipline) from 2 March to 30 March as we will not meet on 16 March.
