This Lent

Lent starts with Ash Wednesday on 1st March with services of Communion with Ashing at St John’s at 9:30am and 7:30pm.

Lent Groups

There are four Lent Groups running in the Parish.  If you would like to join one, please contact the leader.  This year we will be following the USPG Lent course on Discipleship –

Leader Time Contact
Pamela Friday 3:00 Via the clergy
Maxine Tuesday 7:30 318135
Hannah Thursday 8:00 612414
Craig Thursday 7:30 for 7:45 332595

Locations will be decided to suit the attendees, so lack of a baby sitter need not be a bar.  The first two groups are already nearly full.

Lent Sermons

During Lent, congregational members will talk about how their faith affects their (working) life instead of the sermon.

Fridays in Lent

The Friday service at 12:00 at St Marks will be followed by a Soup lunch and we will have visiting preachers from local Churches.  The schedule is:

Date Preacher Topic
3/3 Michael Hopkins Introducing Discipleship
10/3 John Edwards How shall we live
17/3 Bob Skinner Living with Difference
24/3 Patrick O’Ferrall A world of Injustice
31/3 John Innes Counting the cost
7/4 John Evans Drawing it together!

The topics are the same ones as the Lent Groups, if you would like to know more, information can be found here: http://www.uspg.org.uk/ resources/discipleship/.
