"Yet again, the York Course sets the standard for Lent courses: focusing on important topics with contributors who both comfort and challenge, it always opens up discussion rather than ends it, and is full of phrases and ideas." Church Times review Jan 2013
"The York Courses are a good brand. They help remind church members of their faith, serve useful sharing on Christian basics and engage with big issues facing humanity." Revd John Twisleton, Jan 2013
