Lent is a time when we can seek to become closer to God through our efforts to learn and understand more. As part of our study and fellowship we are offering a series of Lent talks on the theme of Christianity & Creation.
These are open to everyone. Given continued restrictions, this year our Lent talks must take place on Zoom, also with telephone connection available.

Please use the below zoom link to join us: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/85021155147

No passcode required

There is planned to be an input of 15 to 20 minutes followed by an opportunity for discussion and questions. The events should be really enjoyable and we would encourage as many people as possible to join in.
Please note that most sessions will take place on Thursday evenings with the last one on a Wednesday from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM.

Please put these dates into your diary:

Session 1 Thursday 25th February – Crisis! What Crisis?
