This year’s Lent groups, Practising Hopefulness, will start in the week after the first Sunday in Lent, (week beginning 26 February) and will run for five weeks, finishing the week before Holy Week. This is a practical course drawing on personal experience and insights from the ministry of Jesus.
Last year’s Lent course, The Practice of Paradise, finished by considering what the community of paradise might look like. This year takes up this theme by focusing on the characteristics of a Christian community of paradise. If that sounds ethereal and unrealistic, the themes of the sessions are very down to earth:
(i) Being valued
(ii) Joyful, energising acceptance
(iii) Hope not victimhood
(iv) Awareness, Awakeness, Action
(v) What now?
Last year a lot of people clearly got a great deal out the Lent Course, so please join in and sign up for a group in church or contact the church office: 0114 266 3613 firstname.lastname@example.org.
