From the Deanery: Exploring Together in Lent: Living in Love and Faith

For Lent 2022 we are planning Deanery wide groups to enable us to come together and explore the resources provided by the national church.

Living in Love and Faith sets out to inspire people to think more deeply both about what it means to be human, and to live in love and faith with one another.

It tackles the tough questions and the divisions among Christians about what it means to be holy in a society in which understandings and practices of gender, sexuality and marriage continue to change.

The material includes encounters with real, contemporary disciples of Christ whose stories raise questions which ask us to discern where God is active in human lives. 

There will be five weekly sessions in the weeks beginning March 7th, 14th, 21st, 28th, April 4th . 
Please book to join a group, even if you have had some discussion in your own parish, so that we can share together across our Christian families in thinking through the response of faith to these important issues.
email or phone Rosemary Walters who is co-ordinating and organising the groups  or 01227 768891 and include
·       Your name and parish
·       Your preferred option, live or Zoom
