DIOCESAN LENT COURSE FOR 2013

GROWING IN CHRIST: BEARING FRUIT BY OUR LIFE TOGETHER
At Huddersfield Parish Church we will be engaging with the diocesan Lent course, new for this year and being used by many other churches in across the diocese.

Lent is the time when we mark our faith with thinking, by learning, by additional acts of kindness and charity, and settings aside time for prayer and reflection. Our Lent groups give us a simple structured opportunity to do this, learning from each other and with each other.

When and Where?
Our groups will meet on Wednesday mornings at St Peter’s 10am for coffee and discussion, finishing in time to have a simple soup lunch before joining the Wednesday Communion Service at 12.35, for those who want to stay.

On Thursday evenings, there will also be meetings in the Vicarage or Curate’s house or as announced each week, 7.30 – 9pm.

The material for both groups will be the same and so a mix of evening and daytime sessions is possible, to suit individual circumstances.
The groups will meet Wednesdays 20th February to 20th March, and Thursdays 21st February to 21st March.

What will we explore?
Five weeks of material with each session focusing on a stage in the life of Christ, starting with his birth and childhood and ending with his crucifixion and resurrection. Using links to art in the diocese, each session will include resources for worship, questions for reflection and discussion, and practical suggestions for living out our faith in the world.
Everyone welcome – come and join us.

Daily Bible Readings
The booklet of daily Bible readings and reflections during Lent can be downloaded from the Wakefield Cathedral websiteor copies obtained from St Peter’s.
