What's On

CiA dates for 2017

CiA Lent lectures, Mondays 6 March - 13 March 2017 and 27 March - 3 April 2017, The Salvation Army, West St Helen Street, 8 pm

David Cole will lead a series of devotional lectures based on his book '40 Days with the Celtic Saints'. The lectures will obviously have a Celtic flavour and will include stories from the lives of the saints, which demonstrate great and unassuming faith, often in the face of insurmountable difficulties. These will be related to our own life journey and developing relationship with God.

Experience Easter, 28 March - 2 April 2017, Trinity Learning, Trinity Church

For more information, or to volunteer, contact Rosemary Perrow at trinitylearning@gmail.com.
