Study Options


LENT STUDY – A Way Other Than Our Own by Walter Brueggemann 
(2 Sessions: Mondays at 10.00am & Thursdays at 7.00pm in the Cynthia Poulton Hall)

Walter Brueggemann is an Old Testament scholar. In his devotions for Lent, ‘A Way Other Than Our Own’ we begin our Lenten journey addressed by the remarkable assurance that the God who summons us is the God who goes along with us. Lent recalls times of wilderness and wandering. Walter Brueggemann’s thought-provoking reflections invite us to consider the challenging, beautiful life that comes with walking the way of grace. Each week two devotions will be considered in depth along with prayers by Walter Brueggemann and video clips of his talks or sermons.

Monday Morning Session (10.00am) – Led By The Rev’d Canon Jenny Wilson
Monday Evening Session (7.00pm) – Led by The Rev’d Dr Lynn Arnold AO

Dates: 19 February, 26 February, 5 March, 19 March, 26 March (Holy Week)

For those who can’t make the study groups, Wendy Morecroft is offering a distant group online via Facebook.
