There will be two Ecumenical Lent Study Groups in the town during Lent this year, with one group meeting on a Tuesday evening, and one group meeting on a Wednesday morning.
The Tuesday evening group, organised by Churches Together, will be meeting in Room 1 at King’s Church from 7:30 pm - 9 pm(refreshments from 7 pm), beginning on Tuesday 3 March and ending on Tuesday 31 March. We will be using the York course for 2020, which is marking the 50th anniversary of the musical ‘Jesus Christ, Superstar’. The resources are user-friendly and designed for use by busy people who have little time for preparation! The approach is ecumenical, and this is reflected in the choice of contributors to the course. More information about the course can be found at www.yorkcourses.co.uk/product/superstar. Course members will each need a booklet, and you are asked to contribute £5 to cover the cost of the shared materials and refreshments. For more details, please contact: Gretel Scott on 01273 473904 or 07712 660337 or email: CTLAsecretary@gmail.com
There are (limited) parking spaces on site as well as on the surrounding streets, but please do not park at Homebase.
The Wednesday morning group, organised by Christ Church, will be looking at Prayer, which is one of the themes identified by the Holy Habits book (developed by both the Methodist Church and the United Reformed Church). The meetings will take place at Christ Church on a Wednesday, with coffee from 10 am, running from 10:30 am – 12 noon, followed by a simple soup and roll lunch, with donations at the lunch going to support the work of Christian Aid.
The opening session on Wednesday 4 March will be a special session on “Contemplative Prayer” led by Mr Alan Fox (a church member at Cross Way Church, Seaford). Subsequent sessions, on 11, 18, 25 March, and 1 April, will be led by Rev Andrew Mills, the minister at Christ Church.
All are welcome at either course.
