Notices and news beyond

Church Office Opening Hours - The Office will normally be open on Wednesdays & Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 12 noon. 



‘Talking Jesus’ - This five week Lent course will take place at Penrith Methodist Church, 7.30 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Wednesday 4th, 11th, 18th & 25th March & 1st April.  For more details see posters & March Beacon magazine.

The five sessions will include film clips, inspiring testimonies and real-life examples from folk who, like most of us, felt awkward in sharing their faith but who discovered how to do so in a down-to-earth, natural way. The five sessions includes an interview with Fran Parkinson, who lives in nearby Ravenstonedale and was ordained as a Deacon last summer.

Please see below a link to a 'Trailer' for Talking Jesus which could be useful in letting folk know about the Lent meetings and a means of encouraging others to come along!
