Lent at St John's: How to Change the World

Published by Giles Goddard on Wed, 27 Feb 2019 10:02

The theme for Lent this year is ‘How to Change the World - Action and Contemplation.’  

On Ash Wednesday, 6th March, there will be a Eucharist and Imposition of Ashes at 7pm at St John's. 

The Lent course, on Tuesday evenings at 7pm in the Octavia Room, will be a chance for you to think, pray and be inspired by the life-changing faith of which we are part. We will focus on the link between contemplation and action. There will be a light supper available between Vespers at 6pm and the Lent Group. 

Especially for all who are following - or may want to follow - a Rule of Life,  Julie Dunstan will be leading  on Tuesday 2nd April
