Looking in Lent
A six-week course using the free resource ‘Inspired to Follow: Art and the Bible Story’ produced by St Martin-in-the-Fields in partnership with the National Gallery. The course uses fine art paintings in the National Gallery’s collection and scripture as a spring board for group reflection and discussion. No prior knowledge of art, artists or paintings is required or necessary to enjoy this entire course, or any one of the stand-alone sessions.
A visit to the National Gallery takes place at the end of the course to see the works in situ.
Led by Briony Mackie and Jane Jales

Friday 23rd March, 7pm group visit to National Gallery, Trafalgar Sq, WC2
Listening in Lent
Music is an essential part of our Christian observance. It is a fundamental part both of our corporate liturgical expression and personal prayer and meditation. During Lent you are invited to spend a few minutes each day listening to some of the pieces of devotional and liturgical music that have shaped Christian observance of this Holy Season for generations. As you listen, you are encouraged to keep a journal of your thoughts, prayers and learning. There will be two sessions to share insights and experiences. The Music List will be available as a separate document in the Church Porch or from the Parish Office.
A self-guided course facilitated by Fr David and Jean-Paul Sinclair
Insights meetings: Thursdays 8th and 22nd March at 7.30pm in church
Lectio in Lent
Spending time with Holy Scripture is both a study and an act of devotion. During Lent we will have a series of guided reflections, following the model of the ancient practice of Lectio Divina. Each week we will reflect on and discuss a passage from the Gospel according to St Mark. An optional daily programme for private reading, working through the whole Gospel during Lent, will also be provided, and the passage for discussion will be taken from that week’s readings.
Led by Mo Paulette and Fr Andy
Tuesdays at 7.45, for 45 minutes, in the Thatched House, Paddenswick Road
Learning in Lent
The Women Mystics of Renaissance Italy
A Mystic is someone who is in love with God. As the social and cultural movements we know as the Renaissance arrived and progressed in Italy, five women mystics carried the flame of Christian faith across these momentous times and for the generations. This is an opportunity to glimpse into the lives and times of these holy women and their Visions and experiences of Christian love.
