Stratton Team Ministry Lent Studies 2011

This year we are joining with other Christians and with the Diocese in celebrating the 400th year of being able to read the Bible in our own language. As part of this we are going to study Matthew’s Gospel in Lent. As a corporate Lenten Spiritual Discipline, following the leadership of our Bishops, we are encouraging people to join with Anglicans in the Diocese to read Matthew’s Gospel duringthe 6 weeks of Lent. This is roughly a chapter each working day. Everyone is of course free to do this is their own way, whatever best suits your taste and pattern, but here is an outline programme that you may find helpful useful available in church. You will also find in church the Lent Study Programme. This is a wonderful opportunity to come together and seek to grow in our relationship with God and each other. Please make this part of your journey through Lent.
