Things are ready for the beginning of Lent.
Over the last few weeks, almost exactly fifty members of our three congregations (perhaps a third of the adults who we might expect to see at worship on anything like a regular basis) have provided a note about where they spend their time in the community, at leisure, at work or volunteering. The answers have now been brought together in a leaflet which will be available on Sunday (3rd March). It asks us all to pray through Lent for each other’s working out of Christian discipleship in those places, with the Bible Study opportunities to which a few will come each Lent this year simply promising to pick up something relevant each week.
On Ash Wednesday (6th March) there will be an opportunity to begin Lent sharing in a simple Communion and reflection either at St James’, Cross Roads at 9.30 a.m. or at St Gabriel’s, Stanbury at 7.30 p.m.
