Churches Together in Tenterden: Lent Course and Lent Lunches.

Here are the plans for Churches Together in Tenterden to work together through Lent.

We start in the Zion Baptist Church on Friday 24 February at 12.00 Noon.

A light ploughman’s style lunch with Coffee or Tea will be served at a cost of £5 with “profits” going to Christian Aid, who along with CAFOD and other charities are part of the Disasters Emergency Committee.

Volunteers to help set up, serve and clear up are asked to please arrive at Zion each Friday to prepare the food at 11:30 am.

The Lent Course will run for five sessions, using the book “Lentwise” (Spiritual Essentials for Real Life) by Paula Gooder. Copies of the book will be available to purchase. Cost approximately £9.00. Please let Jolyon know if you would like a copy.

The course sessions will be led by a team drawn from Churches Together in Tenterden.

This will begin on Friday 24 February, straight after the Lent lunch from 1.00 pm to 2:30 pm and normally repeated the following Wednesday evening in St. Mildred’s Church, Tenterden from 7.00 pm until 8:30pm.

Please note that the course cannot take place on Friday 3rd March due to the World Day of Prayer, so session 2 will be held for the first time on Wednesday 8th March and repeated on Friday 10th March.

Thereafter, the pattern of Wednesday, repeated on Friday, continues until the end of the course on Friday 31st March. The sessions are as follows:

  1. Friday 24 Feb and Wed 1st March – Compass: Finding Direction
  2. Wed 8 March and Friday 10 March – Nourishment: Keeping Going
  3. Wed 15 March and Friday 17 March – Light: Gaining Wisdom
  4. Wed 22March and Friday 24 March – Shelter: Finding Security
  5. Wed 29 March and Friday 31 March – Water: Enjoying Refreshment
