Power and Passion: Lent Course 2013

News St Martin – Talking Points

Monday 28 January 2013

In this year’s Lent course each Monday night we will be following the story of a different character central to the Gospels’ Passion Narrative: Pontius Pilate, Barabbas, Joseph or Arimathea, Mrs Pilate, Peter, and Mary Magdalene. 

Mondays: February 18, 25, March 4, 11, 18, 25 from 7.00pm-8.30pm.

Based on Revd Dr Sam Wells’ book, which was chosen as the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Lent Book in 2007, each evening will involved the chance for reflection, discussion in smaller groups and prayer. Rowan Williams wrote this book: “It brings us face to face with Jesus in a rare way. The opportunities for reflection at the end of each of these studies are carefully designed invitations to growth in faith and maturity.  This Lent book is a distillation of real wisdom – and passion as well, passion that is lovingly and thoughtfully channelled toward the health or the church and the world.  I have found it indeed to be an encounter with the crucified and risen Jesus.”

The cost of this course for all six weeks is £12 which will include a copy of the book.

Flyers for registration are available at the back of the church or for download below. All are welcome.

Lunchbreak, Thursdays at 1.00pm

Led by Revd Will Morris, this ten-week series of talks on a ‘theology of everyday things’ will examine the links between our faith, the Bible, and the ordinary things we encounter during the week in central London.

The half hour service starting at 1.00pm is followed at 1.30pm by a simple lunch at  a nominal price for those who would like to stay. All are welcome.

Living the Questions

Living the Questions is an opportunity to question afresh the core issues of the Christian faith accompanied by a number of leading theologians. The course offers a chance to name and explore questions, share experiences and form a community for a stage of the journey.  The course runs throughout the educational year from 12.15-1.45 after the Parish Sung Eucharist on Sundays.
