Lent Course 2018: Finding a Voice—The King's Speech

Followers of Christ are described in the New Testament as a royal priesthood and inheritors of the kingdom—people with incredible potential and enormous responsibility. Yet the selves we see in the mirror are flawed and failing, all too often tongue-tied and terrified.

'The King's Speech' is such a runaway success because it holds that mirror to our world and offers hope of overcoming the difficulties. It shows hope built out of friendship, trust and supportive love, and courage in the face of gathering evil.

Lent is traditionally a time for strengthening resolve, bringing believers together in trust and encouragement as they strive to follow their calling. The purpose of this course could be summed up in the words of the King's speech therapist: To give them faith in their voice and let them know a friend is listening. The course provides five group sessions on Wednesdays in Lent. It uses the film as a starting point, along with personal weekly reading, exploring more fully the issues raised, and Bible readings to root it in Christian values.

Wednesday Mornings will finish with soup and a roll.

Wednesday Evenings will start with coffee and biscuits.
