Lent 2019  6th March (Ash Wednesday) - 18th April (Maundy Thursday)

FOR AN INTRODUCTION TO ASH WEDNESDAY AND LENT  SEE HERE

The Lytchetts and Upton Benefice  Lent Course

 Bible Book Club for Lent 

This year we invite you to get your teeth into the word of God!
We are going to read a book of the Bible each week in Lent – covering a range of genres and styles. The Bible Society have produced very helpful notes, like a book club, to introduce each book of the Bible.

You are asked to read a Bible Book (or at least key chunks! - PLEASE SEE BELOW) in advance and then to share in an exploration of the themes, theology, challenges and joys of the book with others
