During Lent 2016 we have two options of Lenten studies people can join in with.

"Thursday Night Movies"  being held at St Matthew's, 6:30pm for 7:00pm start.  Watch a Lenten study movie and have a chat afterwards.  Relaxed atmosphere.  Runs from 11th February to 17th March inclusive.

We also have available, Lenten study book called "Generous Hospitality, making room at the table".  This is an easy to use resource for an individual or small groups to use.  
So why not grab one, get a friend or two together and explore this material during lent.

Please get in contact with the parish office (389 3470) if you have any questions or want a copy of the study book.
