Lent can be a confusing time. Should we run a Lent course? If so, how do we go about it and what resources are available? What are the practicalities? Should we consider a Lent book to read each day?
Come along to Sarum College on Thursday 9 February at 3pm for a relaxed afternoon when we’ll offer support for a range of ideas.
Over a cup of tea we will consider available resources and practicalities, with imput from our expert speakers and a chance to learn from each other.
There will be input from:
- Sarum College Principal James Woodward who has been looking at a good selection of this year’s publications for Lent;
- James Steven, Academic Dean and Programme Leader for Christian Litrugy at Sarum who will explore ways of celebrating the Lent liturgy;
- Debbie Orriss, Discipleship Co-Ordinator for the Diocese of Salisbury who will talk about running a Lent course;
- Author Amy Boucher-Pye who will talk about the benefits and joys of reading a book during Lent – and about her own Lent book, The Living Cross.
Jenny Monds, Manager of the bookshop, will have plenty of resources to look at and compare, and there will be the opportunity for discussion and the sharing of ‘best practice’.
Whether you have many years experience of running a Lent course or are just thinking of the possibility, we’d love to hear your views.
I do hope you will be able to join us and make this a fruitful afternoon – do bring others from your church!
