Cracked Wide Open Diocesan Lent Course 2020

5 x weekly sessions beginning

Sunday, 21 February at 5 pm

The Covid-19 pandemic has possibly caused us to face up to fundamental questions about life, its meaning and purpose, and we have realised that we need to be connected to one another.  ‘Cracked Wide Open’ helps us to grow and deepen our faith, and asks what is necessary for us to feel connected to one another as the Body of Christ.

It may be that you worship elsewhere and are unable to access a Lent Course with your usual worshipping community. 

Everyone is welcome

Zoom Bible Studies

Zoom Bible Studies on Sundays at 5 pm, to be repeated on Wednesdays at 8 pm. The first will be held at 5 pm Sunday 10th January

The theme is A History of the Bible. You may have picked up some of the Radio 4 broadcasts this week, based on the book of that title by John Barton. They have been excellent and will, I think, provide a good opportunity for further questions and discussion. There are 5 extracts, each of 13 minutes or so, read by Hugh Bonneville:

   Ancient Book, Modern World
   The Gospel Truth?
   In the Beginning ….
   Who’s In and Who’s Out?
   Nine Lessons and Carols
 
These readings are available on BBC iPlayer until about 29 January – but we have local copies to keep us going into February. Meanwhile we will send links out to you via Mailchimp week by week CLICK HERE here to be added to the mailchimp distribution list. Please listen to the reading in advance of the zoom session, and perhaps make notes of questions as you listen to it. Bring your questions and comments to the discussion. None of us are experts, but we can certainly learn a lot together.
