Lent Reflections will take place on the Mondays in Lent starting on March 10th and running until 7th April. These reflections will start at 19.00 with 45 minutes reflection and discussion on a set text that forms part of the Way of the Cross, followed by tea and conversation. A variety of speakers and a variety of ways to interact from a straight talk, to meditation, and to something interactive will encourage us all to reflect on the Lenten period in a different way this year. Lent reflections will take place in the Manse.
