Lent Study groups: 'Live Lent - Let your light shine'

This series of studies is arranged by the Anglican Church and will be an opportunity to meet and learn with friends from other churches.

It is a Lenten journey through the Gospel of John, offering a short daily reading, a pause for reflection and prayer and a challenge to act,with a focus on witness to link with Thy Kingdom Come (between Ascension Day and Pentecost). It is written in simple and accessible language by the Archdeacon of Wandsworth, John Kiddle, and includes a welcome from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York.


The times and venues are as follows:-

Thursday mornings 11:00, Orchard House, Orchard Lane, Crewkerne

(hosted by Margaret Barton )   Starts 15th Feb


Thursday afternoons 2pm, Knowle House,  Knowle Lane,  Misterton

(hosted by Misterton Bible Study Group)  Starts 15th Feb


Tuesday mornings 10:30, Beaumont Room, Haselbury Plucknett Church
