The team at the Diocese of Canterbury have once again produced a Lent Course for a variety of groups, based on John 21: breakfast on the beach. The course offers five sessions for the five weeks of Lent and comes in two versions. An in depth study of John and a more creative version written with children, young people and all-age groups in mind. They can be used on their own or mixed together for a diverse and interactive Lenten experience.
The key words that run through John 21, and each session of the course, are rich
threads, or even guide ropes, upon which the tapestry of the gospel is stretched. These
relational words – see, eat, love, know, and follow, carry resonating chunks of John’s
gospel texts with them. They are food for the journey to needful disciples.
There are also three opportunities to look at the materials with top tips on leading a group. If you think you might like to lead a group and would like a little help or confidence building then please book yourself into one of these sessions:
Ashford Archdeaconry – 9 February
Canterbury Archdeaconry – 10 February
Maidstone Archdeaconry – 11 February
A massive thank you needs to go to the team of youth and children’s ministers who generously volunteered their time and creativity in producing the Children, Young People and All-Age version! [HT]
