Lent Discussion Groups

The Pilgrim Course on The Ten Commandments

We are using a course called 'Pilgrim' produced for the Church of England where one of the course authors is our own Bishop Steven Croft, Bishop of Oxford.  This course helps us to explore and understand the meaning of the Ten Commandments which can be found in two places in the bible.  In the book of Exodus 20: 1-17 and, with some variations, in the book of Deuteronomy 5: 6-21.  We shall consider different commandments each week so although it is ideal to attend the whole course, each week can stand on its own and you need not attend every week.  Please contact one of the clergy or the churchwardens for more information or to indicate which group you hope to attend to assist our planning.  There are five different groups you can join:

Mondays 10.30-12 noon with refreshments from 10.15am at Marsh Gibbon Rectory led alternately by Revd Angela Mann and Revd David Hiscock

Tuesdays 2.30-4.00pm at Twyford URC led by Revd Barrie Cheetham

Tuesdays 8.00-9.30pm with refreshments from 7.45pm at Steeple Claydon Parish Room led by Revd David Hiscock

Wednesdays 8.00-9.30pm with refreshments from 7.45pm at Marsh Gibbon URC led by Revd David Hiscock

Thursdays 8.00-9.30pm with refreshments from 7.45pm at Grendon Underwood Rectory led by Revd Angela Mann

All Discussion Groups start during the week commencing Monday 19th February and the complete course is comprised of five weekly sessions.  We invite a donation of £5 for each Pilgrim course booklet which is available for all participants.  We will encourage people to enrol in advance, if possible, to assist planning and to enable further booklets to be purchased if required.  Participants may attend a different session if necessary rather than miss a week but are otherwise encouraged to keep to one Group.

By supporting one of our weekly lunches during Lent you are helping to provide food for someone else.  There is no charge for each lunch.  Instead a donation is invited in the bowl as you leave which will aid the Bicester Food Bank.  There is no need to book a place - just come along.  Why not bring a friend?
