Study in Bemerton Parish

Lent Course

We will be running a 5 week Lent course on Wednesday evenings from 7pm-8:30pm from March 9th. We will be considering how people of faith should respond to the issues raised in the film ‘I Daniel Blake’. Please let Rev Kevin know if you would like to be part of this reflection group.

Are you interested in reading and discussing the Inclusive Church books? Inclusive Church is about offering a welcome to all who have felt rejected by a church because of their gender, ethnicity, sexuality, disability, mental health or poverty.

Please let Kevin know if you’d like to join a study group.

The course will facilitated by Revd Canon Kim Stephens and if you are interested or want further details please do send an email to Kim.Stephens@ salisbury.anglican.org

Kim has worked alongside the hospice and the chaplaincy has been involved in facilitating and leading group conversations around death and dying. This time at end of life is especially precious and highlights the importance of those conversations which are difficult to have.
