Lent starts with Ash Wednesday on 1st March with services of Communion with Ashing at St John’s at 9:30am and 7:30pm.
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 –
|Pamela||Friday 3:00||Via the clergy|
|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.
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:
|3/3||Michael Hopkins||Introducing Discipleship|
