Come and join us for worship…
There’s so much going on this week as we enter into the period known as Lent. We’d love you to join us for some or all of our events, activities and services.
Shrove Tuesday falls this week on Tuesday 21st Feb, so we’ve got a pancake party planned. You can find out more information here.
On Wednesday 22nd Feb, we mark Ash Wednesday (the first day of Lent) with a solemn service of Holy Communion at St Peter’s Church beginning at 10.30am. This service will include, for those who want it, the imposition of ashes which involves marking a cross on the forehead of each worshipper using ash as a sign of penitence. This is usually accompannied by the words, ‘Remember that you are but dust, and to dust you will return; turn away from your sin and be faithful to Christ.’ It is a very significant and poignant moment for many – I do hope you will be able to attend.
On Sunday, we will meet again at 9.30am in St Peter’s for a service of Holy Communion especially suitable for all ages whilst still using the traditional words of the Book of Common Prayer; and then again at 11am in Christ Church for a service of Sunday Worship. Do let us know if it is your first time with us and our welcome team will make sure that you have all the information you need to get the most out of your time with us. Both services will be followed by refreshments so there’s plenty of opportunity to chat with others and make new friends.
