Today is the Third Sunday Before Lent and we are speeding towards Lent and Easter. The beginning of Lent is marked with a special Ash Wednesday Service – 1st March, 7.30pm at St Johns. Revd Rod Corke will be presiding and Revd Jane Eastell will be preaching.
Then our Lent talks begin. Professor Roger Trigg, University of Oxford, will be speaking about Christianity in contemporary culture on the theme ‘Should this still be a Christian society?’ 7:30pm – 9:00pm in the Upper Room. The four talks cover the following topics:-
- Wednesday 8th March: Does Science undermine religion?
- Tuesday 14th March: Should Religion play a part in public life?
- Wednesday 22nd March: How far should a religious conscience be respected?
- Wednesday 5th April: Must all religions be treated equally?
