  1. Faith Development: Canons in Conversation

    Comments Off on Faith Development: Canons in Conversation

    For the last five years, we have offered a series of Lent talks under the overall heading of ‘Inspiring…’ (Anglicans, Places, Texts, Images and Words).

    This year, we would like to offer something a little different.

    On Thursdays 21st March (the Dean), 4th April (Canon Jean Skinner) and 11th April (Canon Steven Harvey), each of us will be interviewed by a colleague about our faith development – how our journey started, what has encouraged us, what has challenged us, and what has changed in our understanding and practice as we have travelled as Christians and as priests.

    The format will be the same on each occasion.

    There will be a Eucharist in St George’s Chapel at 11.30am; the conversation will begin at 12.15pm; and this will be followed by discussion over coffee and biscuits (although people are very welcome to bring a packed lunch).

    All are welcome.

  2. The Greatest Showman – Lent Course

    Comments Off on The Greatest Showman – Lent Course

    Canon Clare MacLaren and Rev Thomas Sharp will be leading a film-based Lent Course this year.











    It is based on the hugely popular film The Greatest Showman, the 2018 Golden Globe-nominated movie about the founder and stars of the Barnum & Bailey Circus.

    This is a Lent course written by the priest and poet Rachel Mann, exploring Christian themes of hope, redemption and new life.

    The six-week course will include lots of opportunity for discussion, questions, biblical reflection and prayer based on short excerpts from the film.

    You don’t have to have watched the whole film to enjoy this, but an opportunity to do so will be made available beforehand.

    Every session will take place in the Education Centre of the Cathedral, where hot drinks and cake will be available.

    We will start each session at 5.30pm and be finished by 7.30pm at the very latest.

    Sunday 3rd March – film screening
    Sundays 10th, 17th, 24th and 31st March and 7th April

    All are welcome
