Lent 2021

Lent is a chance to get to know Jesus better.  If you’re new to church its a great time to dip your toe in.  If you used to come to church, there’s no better time to come back….

From Ash Wednesday on 14th February through to Easter Day  there are lots of different opportunities ONLINE for you to take your faith a bit more seriously.

The week running up to Easter is called Holy Week – when we ‘go on retreat – at home’ …. if you would like to join in, you are invited to do so.  You’ll have  your own retreat guide, a chance to pray together and there is info below.

WE DON’T KNOW YET WHAT EASTER IS GOING TO LOOK LIKE IN CHURCH PHYSICALLY AT PRESENT. –  FOR THE SAFETY OF THE MOST VULNERABLE  THE BUILDING WILL REMAIN CLOSED UNTIL 31st MARCH. OUR WORK AND WORSHIP CONTINUES ONLINE.

Holy Week Retreat and Easter

From Ash Wednesday there are opportunities for the next five weeks:

DAILY PRAYER – 10am every day on Zoom led by the Journey Community.

TALKING HEADS – 7.30pm Tuesdays on Facebook  – a shared conversation online about a different issue each week.  Once there its available to watch whenever you want.

COMPLINE – 8pm Wednesdays from church on Facebook and Youtube.

THURSDAY LENT GROUP – a different session each week: Lectio Divina, Faith Through Art, exploring Isaiah.  

STATIONS OF THE CROSS – Saturdays at 4.30pm and here

The Eucharist – Liturgy.
 Wednesday 9.30am & Thursday 7pm
 in the Parish Room.

There are 2 mid week masses which take place in the round in the parish room. Thursday evening has a particular focus on praying for the needs of the world.

Our main services are normally what is called Eucharistic… that means we share blessed or consecrated bread and wine.  Everybody is welcome to take part and whilst we are online we invite you to bring your own bread and wine or food and drink as we worship together… What we cannot guarantee are chocolate free Easter eggs .. though just tell a welcomer if you or your children are lactose intolerant and we’ll make sure nobody is left out.
