2019 Lent Studies — Living the Cross in a Changing World

Cross Studies for Lent, Year C, 2019
written by Revd Dr Colin Dundon

At St Philip's we are embarking on a year of learning together to help us better understand the treasures of our texts and traditions

The Revd Dr Colin Dundon has written a series of studies on the readings for the Sundays in Lent to help us to engage more deeply with the readings that we hear Sunday-by-Sunday in church.

On Thursdays, following the 10.00am Eucharist and at 7.00pm we will gather in the Lamerton Centre meeting room to study together. We hope that many of you will be able to attend. At each session we will study the readings for the following Sunday, beginning on Thursday 7 March and concluding on Thursday 11 April.
