The Desert Fathers & Mothers – Become all Flame

Desert_Mothers

This evening sees the beginning of our Lent course with us looking at the stories of the Desert Mothers and Fathers, particularly thinking about how they prayed and formed community.

The session will begin at 7pm and should last a little over one hour (as we will need to spend a little extra time this week learning Compline), and will be repeated on Friday after the 10:30 BCP Holy Communion.

It would be great to see you there, though each session is designed to be independent, so if you cannot make them all do not worry!
