LENT SERIES FOR THE JOINT BENEFICE OF ST CHAD’S WITH ST ALKMUND’S 2021
This year we will, most probably, still be in lockdown throughout. We shall be aiming primarily for a series for our own two churches, although we would be delighted if others join us. The sessions will take place on Thursdays in Lent by Zoom from 6.30pm to 7.30pm. They will each start with some opening ideas for between 20 and 30 minutes followed by an open conversation.
This year our theme will be:
‘Lord teach us to pray’,
based upon the Lord’s Prayer. The aim is to encourage all of us to pray both personally and corporately.
The sessions will be led by both clergy and lay, principally from our two churches. They will share their experiences of prayer to encourage us to pray. None will claim to be experts but we will all be learners. Each session will be self-contained so people are not obliged to attend every session.
The themes of each week, based on Luke 11 v 1-13 are as follows:
February 18th Lord teach us to pray; introduction with Mother Pietersen
February 25th Our Father…hallowed be your name
March 4th Your Kingdom come, your will be done
March 11th Give us this day our daily bread
March 18th Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us
March 25th Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil
Each session should give us help both on how to pray and what to pray for.
