Ely Diocese launches 2017 Lent Course “All Loves Excelling”

lent-course-coverWe are delighted to introduce the “All Loves Excelling” Lent Course for 2017 – studies in the Letter to the Philippians.

These five studies take us through the whole of the letter to the Philippians. The material is designed to be easy to use, with ideas for prayer activities, led reflections and questions for discussion.

Specially recorded music and testimonies will be available on the diocesan website shortly (http://www.elydiocese.org/worship-and-services/lent17), along with a PDF of the course booklet, which is also in PDF format here: lent17-all-loves-excelling-studies-in-the-letter-to-the-philippians-january-2017

The aim of the course is to grow us in confidence in our faith in Jesus Christ that we may fulfil the mission and ministry he entrusts to us. It is designed to be accessible and flexible for use in the different contexts in which we worship and minister across the diocese.

A printed copy of the Lent book will be also be posted to all Clergy and should be with you no later than the 23/24th January. Additional copies will also be sent to Rural Deans if you require, and we thank Rural Deans in advance for their help in distributing further copies to their parishes upon request.

We do hope that this resource proves useful in the services you hold.

Best wishes,

The Lent17 Editing team
