Lent Course

There is no Partnership Lent course this year. However, St. Peter's Church would like to invite everyone to four sessions they are running looking at Richard Rohr's book 'The Universal Christ.' Fr. Richard comes from a radical Mystical and contemplative school of catholic theology in the same vein and stable as Julian of Norwich, William Blake and Thomas Merton and while you don’t need to have necessarily read the book, it would give a solid background to the course.

The sessions will start at 7pm in the Peter Hall, on the following dates:

  • Tuesday 14th March – The four worldviews
  • Wednesay 22nd March – Spiritual transformation.
  • Tuesday 28th March – Christ is everywhere
  • Wednesday 5th April – Contemplation
