    Lent Course 2017

    Lent is a time of reflection and anticipation. We examine ourselves and ask what Jesus is saying to his people today. Come and discover how being a Christian has directed or changed people’s lives, through good and hard times. We welcome all to come, listen reflect and question.

    All our lent courses are held in Preston Candover Village Hall from 7:30 until 9 pm.
