Why not join us for ‘DIP IN MONDAYS’

On Monday’s through Lent 2018, you have a choice of opting

for one, two or all three

10am   Mass

10.30am  Refreshments and Lent Course

12noon     Lent Charity Lunch

The Lent Course this year is based on Art,  Six people have chosen

their favourite painting, picture, or work of art and will explain

what their choice says about prayer.

Contributors include the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dame Patricia Routledge,

 Lucy Winkett (Vicar of St James, Piccadilly), Caroline Spelman (First Estates Commissioner) and Charles Harrison (Director of Music at Chichester Cathedral).

For each week of Lent there is a chosen painting, a podcast, a special wall chart and notes of leaders and individuals following the course.


Each week, Lent groups and individuals are invited to reflect on the chosen painting by listening to a specially produced podcast (of around 15 minutes) in which the guest explains the significance to them personally of the chosen work.

But in so doing, the guests raise questions for all of us about our own prayer life and how our prayers develop as we mature, journey on our pilgrimage and discover more about the divine mystery as God speaks to us

 in good times and bad.


An accompanying set of notes for each session suggest Scripture Readings and exercises for us in response to what we see and hear.

Please come and join us.

By the end of the six weeks we hope that each participant’s focus on their own prayer life will have been invigorated and challenged

 as a key aspect of our Year of Prayer.
