Lent Course: Living in Love and Faith

Revd Canon Sally and other members of the ministry team will host a 5 week exploration of ‘Living in Love and Faith’ on Wednesday evenings beginning on 9th March.  The sessions will be held in St Mary’s Church, Marshfield so that we can use the large TV for the video content.

This important course will enable us to look at what it means to be human, and to explore Christian teaching and learning about identity, sexuality, relationships and marriage. 

The 5 sessions of the course each address a key question:

  • What does it mean to learn together as followers of Jesus Christ?
  • How does our identity in Christ relate to sex and gender?
  • What kinds of relationships does God call us to?
  • Where do our bodies and sex fit in to all of this?
  • How do diversity and difference affect our life together as a church?

Each session includes an opening reflection about learning together, followed by teaching, time for discussion and Bible study.  The sessions end with an invitation to reflect on our learning, bringing it to God in prayer.
