The Lent Modules for 2018



The first of the 5 sessions commence in the D'Arcy Room on Wednesday February 21st, 10.30am-12.00. This year's subject will be prayer.

Though each session will have a speaker on various aspects of prayer, there will also be an opportunity to actually do it!  We hope, as in previous years, to have some of our friends from Churches Together in Maldon to join us.

(Sister Moira, of the RC order of Canonesses of the Holy Sepulchre)

Module Lent 2

People who met Jesus 

During this module you will reflect and discuss the social, cultural, faith issues surrounding the crucifixion at the time of Jesus and for 21st century believers. From the Last supper to the actual crucifixion various people interacted with Jesus including a temple guard, people in the crowd. We meet some of these people using monologues, meditation and open discussion. No experience required but come with an open mind. Please bring your own lunch.

Tutor: Mrs Maureen McPherson

Module Lent 12 

Stress and Relaxation

Stress is in everybody’s life. It can be beneficial or destructive. As a group we look at how our body and mind reacts to stress and how we can de-stress. As a group we try various relaxation techniques and exercises with the aim of handling the stress in our lives better. No previous experience necessary but come with an open mind. Please bring your own lunch

Module Lent 14

Primed for Prayer

St Paul tells us to pray constantly. That is easier said than done and not at all as easy as it sounds. The course will be experiential i.e. of a more practical nature, involving some prayer and aims at exploring, and recognising, what can trigger prayer in daily life. For example, 'looking' is not the same as 'seeing'. Previous courses from Linda on prayer have been about how to pray, and perhaps about what to pray. This one is almost all about motivation to pray. To prime something is to set it ready to work. Being primed for prayer could be useful.

Module Lent 16

The Gospel of Christ and the Expansion of Human Consciousness

The New Testament seems to have arisen out of an unprecedented experience of human vitality among those who believed that they had encountered, submitted to, and were living in the power of, the crucified and risen Christ. While we encounter many examples of such vitality among modern Christians, it is far from the norm. Much modern Christianity is either dull and conformist, or makes a great play of a vitality which is in reality subject to some pretty rigid rules. In this course, we will use Scripture and theological reflection to seek to uncover this vitality, and try to be honest about our own personal experience, including where we have got stuck, to try to make the vitality more our own.'

Tutor: Revd Robert Wiggs & Tuesday evenings 7.30pm - 9.30pm Revd John Dickens & Mrs Adrienne Knight
