We will be starting this course in 2 weeks time..more information to follow...looking forward to discovering more about being a Light for Christ
What does it mean to be a ‘Light for Christ’? How does it change our lives and our world?
Shining as Lights is a new short course, for groups or individuals, which helps us explore these questions. You could use it during Lent, or at other times. It encourages us to experiment and develop a personal Rule of Life: a simple framework of actions for living out our faith day by day.
