During Lent it’s normal for Christians to reflect about life, the universe and all that.  This year, aware of our own strange journey through a time of pandemic, we invite you to spend some time in a group reflecting on our wilderness experience. We’ll share a simple supper, listen to each other and each week see what the bible offers us as a resource for wilderness travellers. From 8 o’clock we’ll have a compline music and prayer to finish.
