Living the Vision – Lent Groups

During Lent you are warmly invited to join a group to explore Living the Vision. One important aim of the groups is to get to know one another so that we can more effectively love and serve each other and the Living God we know in Jesus Christ.

Each week we will study a short passage of Scripture and be invited to try an activity at home or work. The following week we will reflect on the task undertaken in the previous week. The tasks are linked to the commitments which might be part of a rule of life. There will be a short introduction to each session in the form of a video/you tube clip.

As the groups are taking place during Lent, the biblical theme will be following Luke Chapter 22, which describes events between the entry into Jerusalem and the crucifixion.

Groups will meet for 45 minutes after the 9am or 11am services. Details about how to sign up for one of the groups is in the weekly notice sheet.

Please pray with us and for us.

God of our life,
may we grow in faith and love
with confidence in you;
alive in Jesus Christ.


We believe there has been a church on this site since AD 606. There may well have been a church here even earlier. Southwark Cathedral is the oldest cathedral church building in London, and archaeological evidence shows there was Roman pagan worship here well before that.

Significantly, Southwark stands at the oldest crossing point of the tidal Thames at what was the only entrance to the City of London across the river for many centuries. It is not only a place of worship but also of hospitality to every kind of person: princes and paupers, prelates and prostitutes, poets, playwrights, prisoners and patients have all found refuge here.

Southwark Cathedral is a member of The Association of English Cathedrals
