AT ST ANDREW’S, GREAT CORNARD

Lent Bible Study Groups @ St Andrews - Beginning March 7th

During Lent we will be running two Bible study groups to explore the psalms as a source of guidance, comfort and encouragement. We will also be exploring these in our Sunday sermon teaching, exploring themes such as  praise, lament, petition, thanksgiving and hope

The two groups will be:

Monday Evening 7.30pm in the Bannister Room including Evening Prayer

You do not need to bring anything except yourself, and refreshments will be available. There will be space for exploring questions big and small that you might have about God, life and the universe.
