News - Lent 2016

Once again, many of the Morpeth Churches are running groups throughout Lent to which they would be delighted to welcome anyone, of any denomination or none.

There are several different options to choose from this Lent so there should be something for everyone.

  1. The Psalms - Prayers for Today’s Church: This is a five-session course written by Bishop Stephen Cottrell who says, “This course explores five particular psalms. Each one addresses profound human emotion.  Each one gives us a text and a template for expressing these feelings before God.  They also give us wisdom for navigating our way through similar challenges and delights that we will encounter in life.”

  2. 40 Acts 2016
    This course was followed by several groups last year and was very popular. (more details at The theme this year is 'Jesus at our table'. Jesus ate with sinners and with church leaders; he ate with thousands and with a child. He invited everyone in and accepted all invitations. Table fellowship meant friendship, peace, acceptance and unconditional love: community - and that will be the focus for this seven week study. 

  3. Grasping the Gospels
    A four week course for all-comers being held at Stannington Village Hall looking at the differences between the Gospels and how to read each one to get the most out of it.  It will look at each of the Gospels in turn. 

  4. Friday Communion
    Although not hosting a Lent Course, St Mary’s, Stannington will be celebrating Holy Communion, followed by lunch, at 11.30 am every Friday during Lent  starting on 12th February and Revd Catherine Pickford would be delighted if  people came and joined them. Tel 785606 for details.

  5. Lenten Lunch
    Available on Wednesdays throughout Lent at St Aidan’s from 11.00 am till 1.00 pm, starting on 10th February.

If these times and days are not convenient for you, why not think about hosting a group yourself, either at church (contact office for availability) or at home, - perhaps with a friend to help.  You can get information about hosting a group to study “The Psalms” from The Methodist Church ( tel: 511078), or contact Revd Jeremy Cooper for “40 Acts” information. (tel 511593).
