From the Vicar

Lent starts very early this year, Ash Wednesday, February 10th. Each year the season of Lent helps us to prepare for the death of Christ in Holy Week and then to celebrate his resurrection at Easter. Ideally we should keep Lent together but busy lives make that very difficult.

This year you’re invited to keep a Prayerful Lent at home by using the daily prayer suggestions given in the special leaflet “Lent, Holy Week and Easter 2016”.  You may not be able to come to Church every day, but you can still join in the circle of prayer being offered both at St. George’s and in our homes. We don’t very often pray for ourselves but throughout Lent the prayers are mainly for people associated with St. George’s Church.

Also in the leaflet is a list of all the services taking place at St. George’s Church which once again includes a service on Holy Saturday evening - THE EMPTY TOMB. This will include readings, music and hymns telling the story of Christ’s death and resurrection, leading to the New Fire of Easter. The service will end with a celebratory supper for which tickets are needed. Please get yours from Lynda Sheffield - and if at the same time you buy a ticket for the Parish Lunch in April, you’ll get a discount! Make sure you pick up a copy of the special leaflet next time you’re in St. George’s Church.
