Lent 2018

This year at All Saints, in partnership with CTD (Churches Together in Denmead), we will be reading a Lent book ‘Let Me Go There’ written by Paula Gooder.
This book explores themes related to Lent and asks what does it mean to follow Jesus in our everyday, ordinary lives?

The book provides a daily bible reading with a short reflection (just 2-3 pages each day) which can be read privately. It then also offers some questions to think and pray about.
We will be forming several Lent Groups which will meet once a week, for 6 weeks, to share together, consider the questions the book presents, and pray for each other. Finally, each Sunday at All Saints, our 9.30am service talks will focus on the topics the book raises.

Copies are available to buy at the back of church for £5 each. Please take one and leave your money in the envelope provided in the wall safe.
If you would like to join a study group there is a list at the back of church with details of when each group is meeting and who the leader is. Please sign up for one group (incl. phone number) and the leader will be in touch with you before the first session.

Confirmation Preparation
Session 1: Thursday 1st March
Session 2: Thurs 19 April
