The Lent Group this year will be following a set of discussions called "Life on the Front Line." We will be exploring how we exercise our Christian calling and witness in our everyday lives at home, at work, at school or wherever we find ourselves during the course of a week.

The meeting will be held at the Vicarage each Wednesday evening in Lent beginning on Wednesday 8th March.

Each meeting will begin with a short video followed by a discussion on the points it raises.
