9aDay - An Evening Course for Lent 2019

Are you getting your Five a Day?  How about NINE a Day!

St Paul taught that as Christians we can produce the 'Fruits of the Holy Spirit' in our lives, and there are nine of them – Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self Control.  We should wish to see these fruits flourish within us, as we look to become more like Jesus Christ. You can read all about it in Paul's Letter to the Galatians.

As we approach the season of Lent towards Easter, which is always a good few weeks for self-examination, we try to remember how much Christ has done for us through his Earthly ministry, his death and his resurrection.  As Christians we take upon ourselves Jesus's charge that we should live in his example of love, hope and care wherever and whoever we are.

Across five Wednesday evenings in Lent, beginning on 13th March, there is a new course running to explore these Fruits of the Spirit, and how we can nurture them in our lives.  Here is brief video to introduce the theme.

Each evening we shall explore two of each of these Fruits of the Spirit, looking to see how Christ lived them himself, and consider what that means for us here today.  We shall come together for a short time of worship, teaching, and prayerful commitment.  We would look to begin at 7:30pm in the Church Hall and finish by 9:00pm.

The course will carry a cost of £20, which will include Chris Wright's book:
