LENT READING GROUP: 'Reading Lancelot Andrewes'

Over the course of Lent term, we shall be meeting to read and discuss the sermons and private devotions of Lancelot Andrewes (1555-1626). Andrewes's sermons are regarded among the greatest in the English Language. Alongside his devotions, they point towards the deeper unity of theology and the life of prayer.

All are most welcome to attend, on a regular or an ad hoc basis. Meetings take place in Clare on Tuesdays in E3 at 8.00 p.m., beginning on 20 January. Please contact the Decani Scholar with any questions and for distribution of the readings.
