Following the positive response to last year’s #LiveLent, we are again encouraging people to engage with the Church of England’s Lent resources, #LiveLent 2021: God’s Story, Our Story. It is based on the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Lent book for this year, Living His Story, by Hannah Steele. Please use the link below to find out more about how to access resources:
Sedgefield Area Churches Together will be running a Lent course on Wednesday evenings at 7pm, from 24th February to 24th March. We will be following a course called “Our Common Home: Caring for God’s Creation.”
Sessions will take place via Zoom. Please contact Elizabeth on 01429 883151 or Elizabeth.firstname.lastname@example.org) if you wish to receive the link for the Lent course.
We will also have daily Tweets during Lent on our parish Twitter account. These have been written by a member of one of our congregations. Each week has a theme, and each day there is a short bible reference and a brief thought for the day. You can find the Parish of the Upper Skerne @skerneupper
