Our sermon series for Lent

Prayer is a conversation with God but if we are honest, most of us find it easier to talk to God than hear what he is saying. During Lent we are going to be focussing on how we might hear God in our daily lives. Our teaching series will be running alongside our recommendations for two resources you might find useful (our Lent book ‘How to hear God: a simple guide for normal people’ by Pete Greig and the online Lectio course). We won’t be producing sermon notes through Lent as we hope people will use these resources. Click here to find out more about how you can get involved.
