From the Vicar : Lent 2014
This first Sunday in March, Transfiguration Sunday, means we are preparing for Lent, which begins on Ash Wednesday, this week. Once again we will travel through these six weeks towards the events of Holy Week and Easter.
Travelling as a group of people builds relationships, understanding, shared experiences and all are welcome on the journey.
On this particular journey we have the opportunity to be close to the greatest travelling companion of all – Jesus – and so discover more about ourselves, each other and the One who helps us define who we are and where we are.
Weekly worship will reflect our growing together and, of course, the Church is open each day for people to drop in, perhaps light a candle, offer a prayer or simply find some quiet space.
Have a good Lent and so look forward with Jesus to a wonderful Easter.
“Lord, give us the eyes of faith, to see your presence in the world.
Where fear closes our eyes, help us.
Where tears blind us, heal us.
Where busyness keeps us from noticing, slow us.
Where pride gets in the way, release us.
Set us free to see your love at work in the world.”
