The topics covered over the six weeks are: The Builder, The Humble King, The Holy King, The Harvester, The Risen King, The Commissioner. Please let Sue Thomas know TODAY – 20th January – if you would like a copy for personal or group study. The Life Group will be starting their Lent studies earlier this year and would be very pleased for you to join them on Wed. 6 February at 7.00 p.m. in the Church. You can pick up a copy of their programme at the back of the church. There’s also a leaflet giving details of other house groups if you’d like to take one.
