Some church groups may want to meet over a period of six weeks, while others may wish to meet for seven weeks, incorporating Holy Week. The first six studies, therefore, are a complete course, with the seventh week providing an ‘extra’ study if wanted.
There is no necessity to complete every activity. The study leader may wish to use some activities one week and not others.
Each study provides a series of activities and consists of:
- A quotation with questions to be used as an ‘ice-breaker’. It is recommended that this is a brief discussion.
- A 5-7 minute video in which a number of Christians give their views on the topic under discussion. It is recommended that the group have a pen and paper to hand to jot down thoughts from the video which can be shared at the end of the video. The study page gives the title and the URL address for each video.
- Alternative Track 1 and Track 2 Bible studies
Track 1: Examples from the life of Jesus taken from Matthew’s Gospel
Track 2: Encouragements to become like Jesus taken from the Epistles
Tracks 1 and 2 provide options for the study leader to decide which track to use if they wish; both tracks need not necessarily be followed in the same year. The unused track can be used as a second Lent Study course on a separate occasion. Different groups within a church may, however, chose to follow different tracks in the same year.
