During Lent we will spend some time on Thursday morning after the midweek service to look at a section of the Beatitudes. This will take the form of a reflection more than of a study. We will be using the Plgrim Journeys booklet “40 days of reflections on the Beatitudes” by Steven Croft. We have some copies for use in church, but if you would prefer to have your own copy to use throughout Lent, it is available as a free app, or you can order it from www.chpublishing.co.uk.
The dates will be as follows:
7th March - Blessed are the poor in Spirit
21st March - Blessed are the meek
28th March - Blessed are the merciful
4th April - Blessed are the peacemakers

Utopia means either “the good place” or “no place”. In his story News from Nowhere (1890), William Morris imagines the perfectly happy society and calls it “nowhere”. Nearly 60 years later, George Orwell does the opposite in Nineteen Eighty Four, imagining the sort of society we now call Dystopia. But in some ways, Utopia and Dystopia resemble one another. Clive Wilmer, poet and critic, Emeritus Fellow at Sidney Sussex College, and Master of John Ruskin’s Guild of St George, explains all.

This event is part of the Spring 2019 programme. Entry is open to all, and normally free, although a small charge or retiring collection may be held where fees are requested by speakers or performers. A complimentary glass of wine or fruit juice and nibbles are served at most events.
