This Lent we are offering two courses on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, starting on Tuesday 23rd February. They are free to join and, as they are interactive, will take place on Zoom.

On Tuesday evenings we will meet between 7pm and 9pm for a discussion and reflection series prepared by the USPG on the subject of climate change 'For such a time'.

On Wednesday Evenings we will be having a shorter reflection on the daily readings set out in the Tearfund Lent Devotional.
