'The Greatest Showman' / Movie and Lent Course

For our Lent group this year, we are planning to use a book by Rachel Mann, called "From Now On: A Lent Course on Hope & Redemption in The Greatest Showman' (London: DLT, 2018)


The book uses the hit musical to explore "themes of hope and dreams, betrayal and redemption".

The course will be at the vicarage at 7.30pm on Tuesday evenings, starting 3 March, and is going to be open to members of all local churches. (Other churches in the area are also running groups using the same material. Please see poster in church for details of alternative dates, times and venues.)


To launch the course, I am planning to show the full movie in the church hall on the evening of Monday 24 February (subject to licence). Admission would be free, but by ticket only for church members. If you would like a ticket, you can do so  by emailing me at . Tickets are limited and will be allocated on a 'first come, first served' basis!


Please also let me know if you would like to join our Lent group.
