We shall begin the season of Lent with Parish Communion with Ashing on Wednesday 26th February at 7.30 pm at All Saints’ Church, Hursley.
As in previous years, we will be running Lent study groups on Wednesday evenings at 8 pm at Compton C of E Primary School and repeat the study at St. Matthew’s Church Room on Thursday mornings at 10 am.
The first session will begin on Wednesday 4th March.
The groups look at aspects of life and faith in the context of a film seen over sessions. You do not have to have attended the course in previous years to join in this year.
The human impact and challenges for the future
Pierre Le Corf lives and works in Aleppo. He and the charity he founded ‘We are Superheros’ have been based close to the frontlines for the last five years. ‘We are Superheros’ create programmes and raises the voices of those most marginalized by conflict.
Pierre will be giving an illustrated talk about his work with video testimony from ordinary citizens of Aleppo on the daily realities of their lives in the course of this terrible conflict on Friday 20th March 2020 at 7.30 pm at All Saints Church, North Baddesley, SO52 9ER.
If you are interested in hearing Pierre’s story, come along and join us.
