Lent Series 2024

Epiphany-Lent Study Group

Every Wednesday, 2:30pm-4:30pm, from 31 January to 13 March


In person in the Richard Eyre Room, Exeter Cathedral (entrance via West Wing of the Cathedral) or remotely via Zoom.

Join our Epiphany-Lent Study Group on the Gospel according to St Mark, with the Revd Canon Professor Richard A. Burridge, an internationally recognised biblical scholar, ethicist, theologian and social commentator.

This seven-week course will look at Mark’s account of Jesus’ ministry of teaching and healing, the origins of the conflict with the religious leaders of his day, Mark’s discussion of Jesus’ identity and mission, as well as prepare us for Holy Week through Mark’s narrative of the Passion and Crucifixion. Insights from the gospel’s possible original audience and context will provide clues for how we can read it today, as well as benefit from Mark’s wisdom under the suffering of the early church for our concerns two thousand years later.

Reflection on Hymnody with Jeremy Rawlings

Sundays 18 February, 25 March, 3 March 10 March 17 March, 11:45am-1:00pm in Exeter Cathedral’s Richard Eyre Room

Many of us will have sung hundreds of hymns in our lives and will no doubt have favourites, but how often have you stopped to think about the words, the music, the circumstances of its creation, or considered how the text of the hymn sits within our liturgy?

Hymns or faith songs are an important part of our worship, particularly in a choral tradition, and provide a valuable opportunity to engage with our faith and spirituality at a very personal level.

These sessions are designed to provide a closer look at five hymns with a seasonal feel. We will not just be looking at ‘traditional’ Lenten hymns but others which fit within the theme.
