NO GREATER LOVE Lent is a season of reflection and preparation as we look forward to the celebration of Easter. Why not join Living Church as we reflect together over Zoom on the final moments of Jesus’ life. In a series of short films shot on location in the Holy land, No Greater Love is a biblical pilgrimage that reveals Christ’s amazing love for us. Over 5 weeks we are given the opportunity to walk step by step with Jesus through the Scriptures from the Garden of Gethsemane to Mount Calvary. There are 5 online sessions – one for each week of Lent which will lead us into Holy week. To book your place on our online program please e-mail livingchurch@downandconnor.org
