The Road Goes Ever On: Discipleship through the eyes of Mark, the Exodus and Lord of the Rings

Lent Studies this year for Pannal, Trinity and our friends at St Robert's will be held in church using studies created by our minister, Ben, during his recent sabbatical. 
The studies expect no prior knowledge of Tolkien's Lord of the Rings but do use parts of the films and the story as a backdrop.
There are 5 formal sessions and a 'prequel' for those who either don't know the story or would like a reminder.  The prequel is on Saturday 24th February, 10.30am to 12noon called  'A Crash Course in Tolkien'.
If you can't make all the dates, it's still ok to attend those you can.

The dates of the main sessions are (7.30pm to 9.00pm):
Monday 26th February
Wednesday 7th March
Thursday 15th March
Thursday 22nd March
Tuesday 27th March
