Message from the Rector

Dear friends

March marks the beginning of Lent and our preparations for Easter, the festival which lies at the centre of our Faith.

During Lent it is traditional to study and examine our lives, repenting the wrong patterns and actions of our old lives and pledging to change in preparation for the resurrection. This often leads people to attend study groups, and to either take on something new or give something up,

We have a lent group running in the benefice this year, jointly with the Methodists.  We are going to use the new reflections from the Bible Reading Fellowship, and some poetry to lead us through to easter – no previous experience is necessary and all are welcome.  We will meet at Holbrook Methodist church each Wednesday evening during lent at 7.30, for about an hour.

I will also be hosting a group on a Monday afternoon at 2.00 at the Rectory, and we will provide all the lent group material online so that if you are still not confident meeting up then you can still study with us.

We kick off Lent with an Ash Wednesday service at St Michael’s Woolverstone at 7.00 pm during which we will be offering prayers for healing.

I look forward to seeing you there!

With best wishes
