During these seasons of preparation we have a range of activities that aim to help people engage more deeply with their faith. There is normally a suggested book, together with a chance for discussion over a simple meal. Alongside this we normally run study sessions on Thursdays during Lent, one group meeting in the afternoon and the other during the evening. This years Advent Study "A Journey to the manger" will take place at the Rectory 7.30 in December on the 3rd (Origins), 10th (Announcements) and 17th (Births). We will end with a short compline service.
The Minster branch of the MU has become a Prayer and Fellowship Group. It meets monthly in members homes praying for our parish, out town and each other.
There is a regular Sunday School, serving to nurture the faith of the younger members of the congregation. This meets in the Minster at 9 30am each 2nd, 3rd and 4th Sundays.
Candidates are prepared for first communion and confirmation as required. Please contact a member of the clergy for more information.
For those who wish to have more in depth guidance in their spiritual lives the clergy are able to discuss personal needs and try to find appropriate help and guidance, both within the parish and the wider Church.
