Two Upcoming Services

Thanksgiving for Marriage

Each year we give couples, whether they have been married a long time ago or recently; in a registry office, hotel or a church; in this country or abroad, to come to church and in a simple act of worship, give thanks to God for years of married life.

This increasingly popular service will be held on 11th February (full details below) and is followed by a reception. It would be wonderful to welcome you to join us.

Ash Wednesday 

The season of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday. Lent is the season during which the church historically did the final preparations for new Christians to baptised at Easter. It is the season in which we recall Jesus' time in the wilderness in preparation for his public ministry. Now the church often encourages us to renew our trust in God and deepen our faith through fasting, prayer and study of the scriptures.

Our Lenten pilgrimage begins with two services on 14th February, details on the poster below. During the service we will each be given the opportunity to receive an ash cross marked on our foreheads as a sign that we wish to renew our trust in God and want to follow Jesus through to his death on the cross. Look out for details of other Lent activities.
