This series of Lenten studies written by Bishop Jeremy Greaves and facilitated by Bishop Bill Ray, will lead participants in a journey through the Year B Gospel, Mark. When Jesus called the first disciples he did not have them learn great tomes of doctrine and dogma, he asked them to do something. From the very beginning Christians were known for what they did and how they lived more than for what they believed. The ‘people of the Way’ knew how to practice the faith.
The journey of Lent invites us to explore what it might mean for us to practice faith in our time. This study explores six different Christian practices over the course of six weeks to begin that journey that so many of us find so difficult from head to heart to hands.
The study will be in the Darnell Room & on Zoom.

EASTER and PASSOVER
 
7.30pm Tuesdays
March 2, 9, 16 and 23
(Following the Meditation Group meeting)
 
Click for more
The spring holidays of Passover and Easter have been intertwined since the earliest periods of Christianity. Each represents the defining event of Judaism and Christianity, respectively: the Exodus from Egypt and the resurrection of Jesus. This course discusses the biblical origins of the two holidays; how Easter grew out of Passover; and how the holidays have changed over the centuries, from the ritual practices to the liturgies and even to the dates on which they are celebrated.
This study follows the Tuesday meditation group and can be attended either in person in the Cathedral or via Zoom; no pre-registration is required.

We witness to God’s story and the impact this has made to our story so that others might also find their story taking on new meaning in the light of God’s love. While the current restrictions on daily life necessitated by the pandemic present significant challenges, the suffering and isolation many continue to face make the need for us to share God’s love with our communities greater than ever. Rather than just being a Lenten discipline, this year’s #LiveLent is a joyful invitation to make witness a normal part of the Christian life, the natural overflow of a life lived in devotion to Christ.
The study will be in the Darnell Room (Booking advised) & on Zoom.
