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) then also offers some questions to think and pray about.

We will be forming several Lent groups which will meet for 6 weeks, to share together, consider the questions the book presents, pray for each other. Then on Sundays at All Saints, our 9.30am service talks will focus on the topics 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.  Groups are limited so sign up early to avoid disappointment.
