There are many fruitful ways to make the most of the season of Lent but one popular tradition is to commit to joining a Lent group. The group meet together weekly throughout Lent in order to meet with other Christians to pray, to study and to grow. If you would like to join us there are two groups meeting this year:
The Magnificence of Prayer
– an exploration of some of the great prayers of the Christian faith
Wednesday evenings from 21st February – meeting at St. Matthew’s Church, St. Petersburgh Place, London, W2 4LA
Food will be served from 7.30pm.
Lent discussions will start shortly after 8pm.
A time of prayer will start shortly after 9pm.
Praying is like breathing; it gives life to our Souls, connecting us to our creator.
The Joy of the Gospel
– a prayerful study of ‘Evangelii Gaudium – the Joy of the Gospel’ written by Pope Francis
Pope Francis writes: ‘The joy of the gospel fills the hearts and lives of all who encounter Jesus. Those who accept his offer of salvation are set free from sin, sorrow, inner emptiness and loneliness. With Christ joy is constantly born anew.’
Thursday evenings from 22nd February – 7.30-9.30pm – meeting at St. Stephen’s Vicarage, 25 Talbot Road, London, W2 5JF
