Below are some of the items from our Pew Leaflet:
St Andrew’s and St Peter’s second Art Day is on Tuesday 13 February, Shrove Tuesday. 10am – 1pm, for children aged 5-12 (older children are welcome to come as helpers). We will create more big, bright banners for both churches using mixed media. Please book with the office by Thursday 8 February. This event is free; donations welcome.
Finding Sanctuary: Through Lent, our preaching series in the 10:15am Sunday service will follow the themes in ‘Finding Sanctuary’ by Abbot Christopher Jamison. Using ancient wisdom from the 6th Century ‘Rule of St Benedict’ and the resulting monastic tradition, Abbot Christopher addresses issues of identity, discipleship and community life. To get more out of our series you can read the book yourself, a chapter a week, or read the short summary of the chapter included in the booklet, both available from the back of the church. There will also be an accompanying Lent group, exploring the same theme shortly after the 10:15am service on a Sunday and in the evening on the following Tuesday. I hope as we all explore these themes together this Lent will be a memorable and enriching time for us as a Church.
