Lent in the Chellington Team

You are most welcome to join any of the Lent groups running across the Team, starting in the week of 11th March.
Meetings are informal and usually run for an hour and a half throughout Lent, discussing and sharing insights on Christian faith, considering questions and issues brought up in a study booklet which is supported by a CD containing reflections from well-known Christian thinkers. All views are welcome, honest doubt is respected and confidential.
"Christ & the Chocolaterie" a five week course written by Hilary Brand, using the film "Chocolat" as a starting point for exploring issues about God, the world and what it means to be human. Groups at Stevington, Monday evening; Carlton, Wednesday evening; Harrold, Wednesday afternoon; Turvey, Thursday evening.
"Life to the Full" a four week York course. Jesus said "I have come so that they may have life and have it to the full" what does this mean? Group at Carlton on Wednesday afternoon.
"The Way to Jerusalem" looking at Luke's Gospel account. Wymington Chapel, Thursday mornings 10:30-12:00.
Further information and sign-up sheets are in each church for the next few weeks.
If you have any further questions, please contact the Chellington Team: or call the Church Office on 01234 720262.
