Simply God – Being with God in the daily round

Parish of Christ the King – Lent Discussions 2020

You are warmly invited to join in the discussions that are taking place across the Parish of Christ the King, please come and bring a friend.

These discussions seek to build on last year’s theme of Building Bridges in Changing Times.
The theme this year has the following aims:

  • To help us all to be more attentive to listening to and discerning the will of God
  • To clarify our shared values that define who we are called ‘to be’ as a community of followers of Christ
  • To explore ways in which we might come together to encourage each other in living out our faith and shared values.


Each session will include:

  • Introduction to the theme for the session
  • An activity all together to explore the theme
  • Small group discussion with
    Group sharing of insights and ideas
  • Short concluding time of worship

A Prayer for our discussions  

As I adventure with you today be the compass that guides me,
the light that shines on my path, the only one I follow.
As I adventure with you today be the word that encourages, the hand that reaches out, each time I stumble.
As I adventure with you today let me glimpse our destination, and appreciate the places through which you lead me.
As I adventure with you today, be the strength I need to follow, and as the day draws to a close let me rest in your embrace.
