Lent Course

This year's Lent course will be on the letter of James which is probably one of the lesser known books in the New Testament.  It's a wonderful letter, with plenty of teaching that is both practical and helpful. 

Each week I shall record a video clip on one chapter.  This will include a reading of the chapter, a reflection and some questions for personal thought and reflection.  I will also include this study as part of the weekly bulletin for those of you who are not online.  I know that some study groups are still meeting via zoom, in which case they will be welcome to follow this year's course if they wish. 

I appreciate that sadly this year we will not be able to meet together as is our custom during Lent, but under the circumstances I do hope and pray that this course of study will be a source of encouragement and inspiration to you.

About Study Groups

A Study Group, or House Group, is a small group of about 8 people who meet together throughout the year 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:

“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 the regular groups study a special 5 week Lent course. Further groups are also organised, these meet just for the Lent period. 

For more information or to join a group please contact Heather Argent, the house group co-ordinator,
