  • Lent Course 2018: ‘Steps in Discipleship’. This year’s course has been prepared within the Diocese, exploring what it means to be called to follow Jesus today and to share the Good News he’s intrusted to us. We’ll be meeting at the Rectory, Seabridge Road, at 2pm and 7.30pm on these Thursdays: March 15th and 22nd. We shall follow the same course in the afternoons and evenings, so come at whichever time you prefer.
