Lent Services 2018
During Lent and Holy Week we will be reflecting on the theme of Prayer, using the book “How to Pray like Jesus and the Saints” by Alfred McBride. We will be welcoming guest speakers at our 10:00am Sunday Services who will be offering us thoughts on praying with different Saints. Stations of the Cross will take place each Tuesday evening and we will also have a series of three Thursday evening Praying with Art sessions, led by Matt Firth and Fr Jeremy.
A downloadable pdf of the services can be found here.

Stations of the Cross will also take place each Tuesday evening (and on Sunday 25th March).
The stations depict Jesus Christ on the day of his crucifixion with accompanying prayers. The stations grew out of imitations of Via Dolorosa in Jerusalem which is believed to be the actual path Jesus walked to Mount Calvary. The object of the stations is to help to make a spiritual pilgrimage through contemplation of the Passion of Christ. We will travel from station to station, in order, stopping at each station to say the selected prayers and reflections.
Each Tuesday evening at 7:00pm:
Tuesday 20th February
Tuesday 27th February
Tuesday 6th March
Tuesday 13th March
Tuesday 20th March
Sunday 25th March at 6:00pm (Part of the Sundays at Six Services)
