A LENT COURSE WITH A DIFFERENCE

posted 10 Feb 2017, 06:18 by Susan Weaver

Based on the film ‘Les Miserables’ (2012) in St Hugh’s church hall on Mondays 6th, 13th, 20th, 27th March and 3rd April 

We have purchased a 5-week course entitled “Another Story Must Begin” which has been run in other parishes with great success.  It deals with the themes of Mercy and Redemption by examining the main characters in the film; and asks us to reassess our own life and the effect we have on those around us.  A section of the film ‘Les Miserables’ will be shown on the first five Monday evenings of Lent, accompanied by reflection and Bible readings. 

A simple supper (£2 per person) will be served before the film from approx 6.15pm to 7pm.  Please contact Deacon David Knight or Mary Wilford (01522 800114) to confirm attendance and discuss dietary requirements.  We aim to finish between 9pm and 9.15pm.
