Lent Resources 2019

Our Lent resources are now available.

Our theme this year is 'God’s Gifts of Love and Mercy' and we will look at how, for thousands of years, people have encountered our God who is full of tenderness and compassion, often in the face of human awkwardness and doubt!

All resources are available to download or can be requested on a CD from the Department for Spirituality by email or calling 0191 243 3302.

Access the materials now.
