Ecumenical Lent Course - Caring for Creation

Last year our Lent group ended after only two sessions because of the first lockdown. Since then we have found new ways of meeting ‘virtually’ so the 2021 ecumenical Lent Study course will be held via Zoom, and hosted by Ian Hempshall, on Tuesday evenings, starting on 23 February. We will be using a new York course, ‘Caring for Creation’ which is designed for virtual meetings, with digital resources. We very much hope that you will wish to join us but it is still possible to order printed course booklets and transcripts of the recorded material for those who would prefer to have their own copies for private use. You can find an introduction to the course, the presenters and the resources here:

https://www.yorkcourses.co.uk/product/caring-for-creation

Each session will run from 7.15 till 8.45 pm, with time at the beginning for greetings and prayer at the end.

The course will be publicised more widely via the Churches Together in Lewes mailing list and everyone is welcome to join us, or you can email CTLAsecretary@gmail.com.

We will send joining details on request a few days before the first session but please do not share them with anyone else or publish them via Social media.

I am sure you will agree that Caring for Creation is a topic of vital importance for everyone.
