Lent Groups

This year’s Lent groups with all be on Zoom. We are using some excellent material from USPG (2020) celebrating the diversity of the church and challenging us about how this relates to our local situation. The course is entitled Living with a World of Difference. There are two ways of accessing the material.

  • Download it from the USPG website, a PDF available here.
  • Complete the form on the USPG website and ask them to send you a printed copy of the booklet (please note that the resources we are using are from 2020 – the title is ‘Living with a world of Difference’) Allow at least 5 days for delivery. This might be helpful particularly for people who can’t join in the Zoom meeting on one device while looking at the material on another. Either way, as the material is free, it would be greatly appreciated if you could make a small donation to USPG.
