Lent Course (5wks) - Starts 4th March 7.30pm in Church

Have you ever wondered why we do what we do in church? Here's a course to ask these questions.

We will be meeting in church on Wednesday evenings at 7.30pm from 4th March looking at two chapters each week.  On the final Wednesday (1st April), Marcus will be joining us for a question and answer session. Please do join us. 

Marcus Throup is Vocations Adviser and Diocesan Director of Ordinands in the Diocese of Winchester, and Visiting Research Fellow in the University of Winchester.
