    Lent Course Wednesdays 7:30pm at Preston Candover Village Hall 
    Each year the benefice runs a lent course, during which we have speakers visit and talk, usually on a theme. This year the theme is: “When I was in need, hungry, naked, cold, imprisoned or dying, you fed, clothed, comforted and advocated for me”. The talks are each Wednesday and are a relaxed environment - its fine to just listen or ask questions - the sessions are open to all. More details here.
