The Watton Churches Together Lent Programme

Thursday 5th March at 10.00am
The 2020 Watton Churches Together Lent Programme will be taking place at the Watton Christian Community Centre

It will consist of 5 consecutive weekly sessions (9.30 for 10am start, till 11.30am) and take the form of a short time of worship, group study and discussion, followed by a time of reflection.

The subject this year is “What’s the Story?” All are welcome!


Let’s talk about it…….

Anyone will be welcome to come to St Mary’s on the last Thursday of the month from 2.00 – 3.30pm, to talk about a ‘hot topic’. We want to listen to each other and grow in confidence, considering how our Christian Faith speaks into the issues which surround us in the news and / or local community. We hope to gain a greater 20:20 vision through talking things over together. At the end of each session, we’ll decide on what will be the ‘hot topic’ for the next month! It will then be advertised in the weekly leaflet.
30th Jan, 27th Feb and every 4th Thurs
