Lent Course on Zoom - Caring for Creation
This year we will be studying one of the York Courses “Caring for Creation”. The material covers topics related to climate change, a subject of increasing importance. The course includes audio material in the form of conversations with experts on climate change.
You can purchase the book which accompanies the course in paper or digital form directly from York Courses and delivery is usually within a couple of days.
The course is free and will be held on Zoom on Thursday evenings from February 25th to March 25th, starting at 8.00pm. You can find out more on the website www.yorkcourses.co.uk . No need to register in advance and we hope you can join us.

If you would like to do some reading, then the Bishop of London’s Lent book ‘Rooted in Love’ is now available from most booksellers and has a reflection for every day in Lent. All the London Bishops have contributed. You can order a copy from Waterstones here.
This year our Lent Giving will be directed to the Diocese of London Lent Appeal which is focussing on youth violence, a problem which has, tragically, touched members of our congregation and been experienced within our Parish. Three charities will be supported and you can read about them here.

The Church of England has produced an App specifically for Lent called #LiveLent.
For each day (Monday to Saturday) the app offers:
• A passage from the Bible
• A reflection exploring the reading
• A short prayer
• Full audio of the daily reflection, including specially commissioned music
• A suggested family activity to help you share the day’s theme with members of your household
For each week, there is:
• A theme, mirroring those of the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Lent book, Living His Story
• An introduction to the week’s theme and an action linked to it
• Links to other #LiveLent resources including weekly group study material
It is also available as a print booklet.
