Equipping the Saints

Christ Church, New Mill


What Are You Giving Up for Lent?

Instead of giving up cake, why not consider giving up a couple of hours a week to attend the ‘Equipping the Saints’ course? Micah 6.6-8 indicates God is more impressed by action than burnt offerings, so this Lent why not enjoy cake, a drink, and a course to help you lead an active Christian life?

What are the questions you encounter where you live, at work, in your job, and with friends and neighbours? ‘Equipping the Saints’ is designed to equip you in your everyday life. Visiting speakers with a wide range of expertise will explore a series of topics and issues. The sessions will be varied in style and there will be ample opportunity for discussion and group work.
