Lent Course: Come and See

February 15, 2024 March 21, 2024
St Edmundsbury Cathedral

The Gospel of John stands apart from the other gospels. It was once described as the most divine of the divine books. To read it is to be given a glimpse of the majesty of God. It is intensely vivid and intensely mysterious in equal measure.


Using new material from the forthcoming book “Meeting God in John” by David Ford, Divinity Emeritus at the University of Cambridge, we will reflect upon how John’s Gospel draws us into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ who is “The beginning and the end” and “in whom all things were made”.


There are two opportunities to join “Come and see” this Lent, with five sessions presented online and five offline.
