Easter Courses from The Church of England

If you are unable to join the Lent Group Course, as an alternative, we encourage you to sign up online and follow the Church of England’s 2019 Lent and Easter courses.

There will be daily reflections on a Bible reading, an invitation to pray and a suggestion of how you might respond to the Beatitudes’ challenge to live as God intends, both as an individual and in the community.
