serving each other; serving the world

Reflecting, Praying, and Acting Together

Lent Course 2017

(Tuesday 19:30-20:45, repeated on Wednesday 10:45-12:00)

This Lent course is all about seeking first God’s Kingdom in the context of all that is happening in the world at the present time. What does this mean in practical terms, and how can we – as God’s people – become the agents for God’s rule in a tangible way? … the first response must be prayer: earnest, intentional and committed prayer, asking that God may be the centre of all life and that God’s rule and authority may be taken seriously in the affairs of this world. In this context, we are suggesting ways in which God’s people, acting together, might work for a more just and equitable society in the places where they live.
