Lent and Advent Talks

During Lent and Advent we usually offer a series of short talks. They begin at 12.45pm and are preceded by light lunches (except on Ash Wednesday).  We invite speakers from a variety of local churches to come and give an insight into the meanings of the seasons from their perspectives.  All are welcome.

In Lent 2015 we are looking at the theme Last Words — Jesus’s last words from the cross.

In Advent 2014 we looked at the theme What do the Wesleys have to say to us today?

In Lent 2014 we explored the theme People of the Gospels.

In Advent 2013 we explored the theme of Expecting Christ.  In Lent 2012 we stayed within Methodism and invited ministers from both the York (South) and York (North) circuits, knowing that the two circuits would come together to form a new unified circuit in September. In Advent 2012 we heard from Revd Elizabeth CushionRevd Matthew Porter, and Nicky Gladstone from CarecentLent 2013 saw us adopt the theme of People of the Passion.
