Benefice Lent Course 2024

All are invited to come and take part in the Lent Course – yes – it’s nearly that time of the year already!

The Benefice Lent Course will run for four weeks on Tuesdays at 2pm and will take place at 17 Maple Close, Pulloxhill.

The study will be based around the road to Emmaus, and help us as we travel together through Lent towards Easter. It will be a relaxed afternoon and a time to get to know others and share what we can see in Scripture and what it says to us today.

Please contact Liz Coulson on if you would like to know more.

Alpha Course

Curious About Faith? Try Alpha

Alpha is a series that explores the basics of the Christian faith in a welcoming, open and friendly environment.

It’s free and there’s no pressure or follow-up.

Each session is held at the Vicarage in Silsoe where we start with a meal. Following that we look at  different topics on Christianity and have time to chat through any thoughts.

It doesn’t matter if you can’t come every week as you can watch the films at home.

You can say anything you like or nothing at all. Everyone is welcome.

No matter your background or beliefs, you’re invited.

Wednesdays at 7pm, food provided
and finished no later than 9pm
