Your March magazine is here

The March parish magazine is here filled with plenty of news about the parish, including the Lent groups, the Seekers service, an encouragement to ‘Pray for 5’, the Literary Festival, groups and events, and the new Badshot Leader. The Badshot Leader was first produced 46 years ago and has been relaunched by the Badshot Lea Community Association in conjunction with the parish. It will appear in the magazine every two months and it can also be received directly from the Association – see page 19 of the magazine.

There are lots of advertisers too – please use them and tell them that you saw them in the magazine.

Your February magazine is here

It’s February, the month of Valentine’s love, pancakes and the first signs of Spring. It’s also a month when lots starts happening in the parish – well, does it ever stop? But here we are coming into Lent, with Lent courses which this year focus on the TV series The Chosen, a Questioning Faith course which will lead to confirmation in the Cathedral on Easter Eve, Shrove Tuesday and Ash Wednesday, with services of ashing, and our Pancakes and Temptations service. Then there is a barn dance on February 25th, and an invitation to enter the Farnham Poetry Competition – this year the theme is hope.

Take a look inside the magazine for more details where you will also find a response to the bishops’ proposals on equal marriage, the Church Cat, prayer, thoughts on faith, events and reports from local groups.

You can find it here:
