Lent Groups

image of bible quoteDuring the period of Lent, our usual Home Groups become Lent Groups, where we follow a short course and focus on a particular theme.

This year, our theme is Salvation Story; Taking the Big Picture.

Everyone is welcome to attend the group, which runs at St Matthew's Church, Grenville Street, Edgeley. The group will start on Wednesday 8 March, 7pm for a light meal, with the group starting at 7.30pm (you are free to join us for the meal or arrive just for the course itself). There is no charge for attending.

The Lent group will study readings from the Essential 100 (E100) verses from the Bible, which we are following as part of the Diocese of Chester's Y Bible initiative. Once the course is finished, we will continue with our regular r Easter services and events.

Use the Contact Form if you would like more information.
