7:00pm: Lent Study – Heroes of the Faith

For our 2022 Lenten Series we have selected the Theme of Heroes of the Faith.   We have invited five speakers to speak about a hero of the faith who is either important to them or who they feel has impacted how we express faith in a significant way.

Speakers have been asked to talk for 20-25 minutes. The talk will be followed by small group discussions and a final plenary session.

The sessions will all be delivered digitally by Zoom beginning at 7pm and lasting for around an hour. Please contact our administrator or digital missioner for the zoom login details.
