As in previous years the Diocese has produced material for churches to use during Lent 2013 on the theme ‘Guides not Guards’ from 1 Corinthians 4:1 “We are guides into God’s most sublime secrets, not security guards posted to protect them.” (The Message)
This year the material has been written by a group of Diocesan Officers (including our very own Murray) and includes a ‘grown-up’ mid-week study course (it isn’t officially known as the ‘grown-up’ course) and some alternative prayers for use on the Sundays in Lent.
Our ChYP’s Ministry Team have in turn produced some corresponding material for use in All-Age Worship and for youth groups to use during Lent. They are all available for download on this blog and on the diocesan website, where you will find all the Lent material that has been produced for 2013.
Please consider using these resources where they fit, and feel free to adapt them or allow them to inspire your own creativity. The All-Age Worship and Youth versions have been written with a stereotypical audience in mind, so please use your instinct and experience to make them right for your context.
As always, we’d love to hear if they have worked AND how you have made them better!
