Lent study guide

Six Middle Eastern Encounters. Follow Jesus, and us, this Lent as we travel across the Middle East together to witness extraordinary hope and transformation entering women's lives.

Our free 2016 Lent study guide has six sessions which all include bible study, prayer, information, 'inside the story', monologues and actions. Each session will introduce you to a different woman from the Bible who encountered Jesus and was changed forever; and bring you face to face with a woman from the Middle East today who is being empowered to live a fuller life through Embrace's work.

You can download, for free, the entire guide or each encounter individually. Use them on your own, in small groups or as a whole Church.

We would love to hear from you if you use this study guide - how did you use it, was it helpful, did it challenge you, what actions did you take? Please do let us know using our contact form.
