LENT AND EASTER services

On Ash Wednesday, 14 February 2018 we will have a service of Holy Communion with the Imposition of Ashes at 6.00pm.  

During Lent we will have a service of Evening Prayer every Wednesday at 6.00pm. This covers the period from 15 February to 28 March - The meditation during the service will be based on the booklet, Making the Easter Connection, by J. John, the well known Church of England evangelist. Members of the Ministry Team will take it in turn to lead these services.

Every Sunday during Lent and Easter we will continue to have our normal Sunday services of Holy Communion at 10.00am.
