The theme for the Churches Together in Britain and Ireland Lent Course is 'the unreconciled'
- How do we bring about reconciliation?
- Who is responsible for bringing about world peace?
- Who should feed the hungry?
- What happens when attempts at reconciliation fail?
- How do we cope with failure?
Beginning with Ash Wednesday, we journey through Lent reflecting on what God has done for us in the crucifixion, death and resurrection of His Son, Jesus Christ.
Because, in 2011, we are celebrating the 400th anniversary of the King James Version of the Bible, each resource will also have a special emphasis on how Scripture helps understand the plight of unreconciled people and how it helps us to understand our hope in Jesus Christ.
This year we will also be providing resources for Holy Week. The full course will be available as a download soon.

The theme of the Lent Course from York Courses is Rich Inheritance: Jesus’ Legacy of Love. It is written by Bishop Stephen Cottrell and Inderjit Bhogal provides the thoughtful closing reflections. Archbishop Vincent Nichols, Paula Gooder and Jim Wallis also feature on the course CD from York Courses. Each of the 5 sessions offers a good selection of stimulating questions aimed at engaging every group member. It is suitable for the ‘Year of the Bible’.
The Catholic diocese of Arundel and Brighton and the Anglican dioceses of Guildford and Chichester are also working together on their own course.
