Lent Focus 2018: Discovering Jesus’ Identity and Mission in Mark’s Gospel

Lent is a season to seek God in prayer, fasting and reflection on the scriptures. In the weeks leading up to Easter, we want to help to you grow in your knowledge of Jesus’ identity and mission. Who is he and what did he come to do? Mark’s Gospel is a great place to find out.

Alongside the Sunday teaching programme, you are invited to read, study and pray through a chapter of Mark’s Gospel each week. You could read a short section each day, at home or on the train, or the whole chapter at one time. Why not meet up once a week with your spouse or another member of the church family to discuss and pray about the things you are reading? Free pocket size copies of Mark’s Gospel are available on Sunday’s from the church info table, or you could read on your smart phone using the YouVersion Bible App. During this season, let’s seek God’s blessing as we aim to grow together as a church community in following and loving Jesus Christ.
