Lent Course 2023: Sound and Sight

Thursday 2 March 2023 at 7.30 pm
St Mary's Church, Whitkirk

Come and join us as we listen and look at carefully chosen pieces of music and images inspired by Lent, Holy Week and Easter to accompany us on our journey through the season.

Each session will be co-led by our Director of Music who will introduce two pieces of music. Then another member of our Church family will introduce and share two images. After every piece or image there will be time to reflect and, if you wish, to share insights based on what you have heard and seen.

Thank God It's Friday
