Lent and Easter will be different this year due to the pandemic but that does not stop us from worshiping and deepening our understanding of God's love for us. During Lent we have a preaching series and study groups. The sermons from each Sunday can be found below in the form of a podcast:

Our Lent Conversations are one more way to stay connected with the church community during this lockdown time. During five weeks in Lent we shall be exploring aspects of our life as individual Christians and as a church, talking together on Zoom on weekdays and using the set Sunday Gospel readings as our starting point.
We shall be exploring these themes together: (1) Our identity and purpose; (2) Commitment and cost; (3) A sense of holiness; (4) Living the eternal life; and (5) Introducing people to Christ. Starting In the week beginning February 21st groups will be meeting online on Monday evenings, Thursday afternoons, and Saturday mornings.
Perhaps you have not shared in this kind of group or this kind of conversation. But if you share in the life of one of our churches, you bring your thoughts and your understanding to share with others. Or you might just want to listen to what others contribute. Lent traditionally is a time to reflect and learn.
So we invite and encourage you to join in. Choose which day is best for you for these five sessions.
