Cove Parish Lent course Wednesday evenings 25 February to 25 March 8 p.m.-9:30 PM at St Christopher's

We encourage everyone to come along to these evenings. As Christians in a changing world, with questions and pressures very specific to our generation, it is vital that we mature ourselves to be ready to engage as believers and “ambassadors for Christ”.

We believe that this is done by engaging with the questions of the age with reference to the Bible, with love, humility and an eagerness to hear what God has to say.
