Churches Together in Penrith Lenten Reflection

Join us this Lent for a practical course helping us to tell other people the story of what Jesus means to us, as we look at stories of the life of Moses.

Week One Mon 19 Feb, at the Salvation Army, Theme: “My Story” Exodus 6. 1-13

Week Two: Tues 27 Feb at St Catherine’s  Theme: “Telling God’s Story” Exodus 3:7-15 & 4:1-13

Week Three: Moving Mountains 8-11 Mar

Moving Mountains is an opportunity for us as churches working together across Cumbria to unite in locally organised mission, outreach and evangelism. We will be joined by teams led by the Church of England (with bishops drawn together by Archbishop Sentamu from the Northern Province), Methodist District Chairs, URC Moderators and Salvation Army District Commanders. We anticipate having about 30-35 such teams visiting the county composed of a mix of lay people, youth workers, ordinands and clergy. The essence of Moving Mountains is local churches planning and doing local mission. The events and style of the mission are decided at local church and area level, with the visiting mission team supporting what has been decided by churches.

Though our Church has not been part of organizing this initiative, nevertheless it is being offered on an ecumenical basis with our Bishop Michael’s signed support and so we are encouraged to take part in the many events being organized.

Week Four: Thurs 15 Mar at the URC Church, Theme: “Hearing the Stories” Exodus 3:1-6

Week Five: Fri 23 Mar at Christ Church, Theme: “Our Story” Numbers 13:17-33
