Lent Programme 2017
Lent Course - 'Les Miserables'This year's Lent course will be based on 'Les Miserables'. This epic story by Victor Hugo provides much to reflect upon, covering some of the great themes of faith and life, such as redemption, forgiveness, hope and faith.
Each week we will reflect upon different stages of the story, concluding with a showing of the whole film at St Nicholas on Saturday 8th April at 7.00pm. (You will be welcome to bring refreshments if you wish). In preparation for the course it is advisable to familiarise yourself with the story.
If you are not currently a member of a house group, please sign the list in the porch of the church so we can allocate you to a group that will be convenient for you to attend.
A special group on Sunday afternoons at 4.30pm will be for young people aged 11 - 15.
A House Group,
or Study Group, is a small group of about 8 people who meet
together in someone’s house, usually once a fortnight, either in the
day or in the evening midweek to learn more about their faith. Many
people attend one of these groups and find the experience enriches
their lives as they study the Bible, share their thoughts and
experiences together and pray and support each other.
Here is one comment:
About House Groups
|“I believe that house groups are one of the most important
facilities that a church can provide. They give strength to the
community, they encourage hospitality and inclusiveness. They also
give people a safe space to voice their thoughts and things that
maybe they don’t understand but would never admit anywhere else!”
During Lent we also try to run some extra day and evening house groups to study a 5 week course.
