Lent Talks 2024

Tue 12th Mar 2024 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Theme: ‘The Temptations of Jesus in the Wilderness’

For the three weeks of mid-Lent, please do take the opportunity to come to the Minster for an hour on a Tuesday evening to be enriched through a series of Lent Talks. Each week we will hear from a different speaker.

For this second talk, we welcome The Reverend Dennis Cavaghan.

Born in Carlisle, Dennis Cavaghan was raised in the centre of London. After starting a career in farming, he trained for the ministry at St John’s College, Nottingham. Later he obtained an MA through Exeter University. In 1974 he was ordained into the Church of England. Most of his ministry has been parish based in Devon. However, for more than two decades he has been based at Taunton Minster (St Mary Magdalene).

Format

Just prior to 7.00pm Miles Quick will play some reflective organ music to settle our minds (Thank you, Miles!). We’ll then begin with a prayer and scripture reading which lead into the talk. There’ll be time for a Q&A session at the end of the talk.
At 8.00pm we’ll offer some simple hospitality and a chance to talk further with the speaker and have fellowship together.
