For pastoral matters this week please contact Rev Ian JohnsoLent Study Groups

Lent begins on Ash Wednesday 26 February. Holy Week begins on Palm Sunday 5 April.This year we are trying a slightly different approach to Lent Study Groups, taking up a suggestion from the Focus Groups. We won’t be holding them on church premises, nor will the minister be leading them. What we are hoping to do is have a group/ groups in people’s houses, and have someone/ some people from the congregation willing to lead the group/groups. Material provided by the ‘Church of Scotland’ will be able for the group/groups to use.

We’re looking for two sets of volunteers:

 people willing to host a study group in their house (and they can set a day/time that suits them)

 people willing to lead a study group. If you think you (or maybe you and someone else) may be interested in leading a group, but you’d like a bit more information/help to do it, we have material from ‘121’ designed to help people lead study groups

If you think you could help with either please have a word with the minister or session clerk
