Lent Course 2017

Eight men own the same wealth as half of the world. This year our Lent course attempts to ‘Dethrone Mammon’ using Justin Welby’s book of the same name.

Join one of our Lent study groups to explore the tensions that arise in a society dominated by ‘Mammon’- one of the biblical words for wealth. We will explore its modern aliases- economics and finance and the pressures of our culture to conform to Mammon’s expectations. Following the Gospels towards Easter, this book asks us what it means to dethrone Mammon in the values and priorities of our civilisation and in our own existence.
