Through all the changing scenes

Using Lent to pause and worship in the midst of life

Come away with me by yourselves to a quiet place..’ – pause, reflect, love, grieve, hope, dream, worship, and pray as we start Lent together. King David is among the greatest heroes and biggest failures in the Bible. We journey with him as he inhabits the extraordinary richness of God’s grace and love in the reality of life, looking over the horizon towards the cross and the hope of the Kingdom. Bishop Mark will be drawing on the ‘Celtic’ tradition of the North East where he serves as Bishop of Berwick, and his work in the area of what it means to be an ‘introvert charismatic’. We will shape space for each other to inhabit the grace and peace of Christ. There will be some quieter periods during the week.
