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:
This group will meet in the south chapel of St. Luke's.
Details of other Lent study groups in the parish are downloadable here.
The usual pattern is for a fortnightly service at St. Giles' on first and third Tuesdays, except during the month of August and the week following Easter Sunday.
In the medieval period there were three churches on Castle Hill; St. Giles, St. Peter by the Castle and All Saints by the Castle. St. Giles survives as a parish church, while St. Peter still stands although it is now redundant. No trace of All Saints survives, but excavations in the 1970s uncovered over a hundred skeletons from its cemetery. These are currently being studied using state of the art scientific techniques. This talk will discuss the evidence for All Saints and the results of the ongoing analysis.
