We thank Jane Denniston for her Daily Worship and we welcome our own James Cathcart who continues the In The Neighbourhood theme exploring how fractured infrastructure can lead to fraying relationships. He considers wells, thirst and fountains.

Our small group discussion questions are online for March-May. March and April form part 1 & 2 of our Lent + Easter With Fresh Eyes initiative.

Our themes for Lent into Easter, for March and April, are now online. In The Neighbourhood invites us to look around our local communities, to get to know them better and to keep our eyes open to spot the shoots of the Kingdom, and in Behold The Man we turn to the face of Christ and consider the enigmatic phrase of Pilate's as we consider God’s unspeakable gift to a broken world...
