Lent Course

This year's Lent Course is Finding a Voice, using The King's Speech as a starting point for discussions.

The five weeks look at: 
  • The stuff of nightmares and the power of friendship
  • Chasing the dream or fulfilling the calling
  • Pressing forward and breaking through
  • Poisonous words and profane responses
  • Faith in our voice
There'll be two sessions a week to choose from:
Tuesdays from 10.00am-12.00pm in the Church Room, St. Lawrence, Bradfield
Thursdays from 7.30pm-9.30pm in the Church Room, St. Lawrence, Bradfield 
(except for the 28th Feb- venue TBA)

It all starts from the 19th of February, and if you haven't seen the film yet, 
there's a great chance to on Friday 8th February at Mistley Movies, 7.30pm in Mistley Church Hall.

Hope to see you there!
