Join us on Saturday 17 March for a special morning with Mark’s Gospel. The morning will include a full reading of the Gospel, from beginning to end, and will pose the question: “How does Mark challenge us today?” All are warmly invited.
This special reading will start at 10.30am and will last for around 100 minutes. There will be no spoken introduction, but notes from a discussion led by The Dean of Bristol will be available beforehand, along with copies of the script.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for all people, whether familiar with Mark’s Gospel or not, to hear this remarkable testament in a new and invigorating way. Mark writes with great urgency, not to be confused with speed, and hearing the Gospel read straight through, without the usual chapter and verse breaks, gives a far better sense of this.” Canon Revd Neville Boundy

What is Lent?
Lent - the great 40 days of preparation for the Feast of Easter - begins on Ash Wednesday, a solemn day of repentance and forgiveness. As we receive the cross of ashes on our foreheads, we are reminded of our mortality and our utter dependence upon God our Father. Over the next six weeks, we journey towards the Cross, examining and reviewing our spiritual lives.
See all of our events in our January - June brochure.
