Lent in The Parish of Putney 


On five Tuesday evenings (7th–28th March, and 25th April), 7.30–9pm at the Rectory (17 Montserrat Road), there will be a course for adults wanting to explore what Christian faith means for us, suitable for newcomers or those wanting to go deeper. For those who decide to be confirmed there will be a further session on 2nd May and a confirmation service on 14th May. For more information or to sign up, contact John ( 



On four Thursday evenings (2nd – 23rd March), 7–8.30pm at St Mary’s Church, there will be a group run by Churches Together in Putney and Roehampton. Each week a different minister from Putney shares their journey of faith, what encourages them and what they struggle with. This is followed by a group Bible study where we all reflect on our spiritual journey. For more information or to sign up, contact John ( or Daniel ( 



On Wednesday 8th March at 2.30pm, join Liz Hamilton, V&A guide and worshipper at All Saints’, for a Lenten tour of the Victoria and Albert Museum, as she invites us to reflect on how we use objects – some beautiful, some mundane, all fascinating – to express and enact our faith. Meet inside the main entrance to the museum. The tour will last about one hour and will be followed by an optional trip to the tea room. There will be some walking and a few stairs, but stools will be on offer if you need one. For more details or to book a place, please contact Jane ( 



On Wednesday 15th March at 7.30pm, join Daniel at the Swiss Church in Covent Garden to attend an immersive, surround-sound performance of Dieterich Buxtehude’s Membra Jesu Nostri (1680), a visceral Baroque choral meditation on the crucified body of Christ. The performance will last about sixty minutes, and most of the audience will need to be standing (or walking around) throughout. More information on the concert download the QR code. Tickets cost between £10 – £18. Please let Daniel know if you would like to come (  


However you choose to observe Lent,  we pray that it will be a time of new discoveries and deeper faith.
