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.
