This Lent at St John’s Café Church we will be studying the short book, Let it be done unto me according to your Word: how Mary helps us to be filled with God. Copies will be provided.


Please join us each Monday in Lent at 9.30am, either in person in the Alston Howard Room in church, or online, for a one-hour session.


On the Monday before Lent (12th February) we will look at the ‘Introduction: Why Mary?’ after which the topics will be:

Monday 19th February: Chosen by God

Monday 26th February: The First Disciple

Monday 4th March: Mother of All

Monday 11th March: Queen of Heaven

Monday 18th March: Help of Christians

Lent Book

After two false starts, it with relief and a certain amount of chagrin that I can say that this project is ready. Over the next two weeks, there will be a series of quotes from the book on our FaceBook page and the Home page of the Website; the series will run through Lent.

Trained as a journalist, Philip Yancey has a knack of writing books that tackle questions of faith in ways that

are readable and absorbing. This book on Prayer is no exception; we benefit from a journalist’s tenacity to get to the heart of the matter and be able to talk plainly about what they found; his years as a thinking and committed Christian mean that we find we are joining a fellow traveler on the road, rather than an expert in theory.



You can buy the book and read it, new £8/used £4.

We have some copies in the church library available to borrow.

Each day in Lent, you will be able to listen to a reading from it,

posted on FaceBook and the Website.

The book is a good read even on a busy day, each chapter is broken into 5-10 minute sections that are worthwhile in themselves – I found it helpful to read the book like that whether busy or not, it gives time to savour the thought before moving on. It is a hugely helpful book by a popular author which I find myself going back to again and again as an encouragement and help in faith as much as in prayer.
