This week sees the beginning of Lent and all of our usual services take place together with an additional service on Wednesday evening at 7.30pm in St. Michael's for a sung Eucharist with the imposition of ashes.
We have several Lent groups available - sign up in church and the first Lent Lunch takes place on Saturday at Christ the King.
This Lent we are supporting the charity Embrace the Middle East, a charity that many may recognise from the Bethlehem Carol Sheets that they provide each Christmas to many churches and groups. The charity works through churches and Christian groups in Palestine, Israel, Syria, Lebenon, Egypt and Iraq to help the vulnerable and improve life for thousands regardless of their faith.

O God of all justice and peace,
we cry out to you in the midst of the pain and trauma of violence and fear which prevails in the Holy Land.
Be with those who need you in these days of suffering; we pray for people of all faiths - Jews, Muslims and Christians and for all people of the land.
While we pray to you, O Lord, for an end to violence and the establishment of peace, we also call to you to bring justice and equity to the peoples. Guide us into your kingdom where all people are treated with dignity and honour as your children - for to all of us you are our Heavenly Father.
In Jesus' name we pray.
Archbishop Hosam Naoum of JerusalemLearn More
