Ash Wednesday

Lent begins on Wednesday 26th February at 7.30pm with a short reflective service in the Cathedral. During the season of Lent we are encouraging the Church family to engage in the ‘Jar of Grace’ project.

At each meal time throughout Lent, we would ask that before you enjoy your meal, take a moment to place a coin/coins in the glass jar and offer a prayer of thanksgiving for the food and for the projects we will be supporting through your giving. On Easter Sunday, we would encourage folks to bring their Jars of Grace to Church and we will receive them and ask God’s blessing on them. We will be supporting two projects.

The first project is to go towards the cost of the installation of a toilet in the middle porch in the Cathedral.

The second project is our link with the Diocese of Maridi in South Sudan. The 3 areas of support are; transport for Bishop Moses, health care at Bethsaida Clinic and education at the Haddow School.

Mothers’ Union Overseas Night

Wednesday 26th February is our Overseas Night and we will have Gillian McMurran along to speak about her association with the High School and the work they do with the Kenya Project.

To support this project, we have been asked to supply new underpants for either male or female and also tights for girls or adults. These will be taken over on the next High School visit. Please bring these on 26th or any parishioner can donate these and leave with Jill in the Church Office or give to Ruby Porter or myself, Helen Forsythe.

There will also be a Bring and Buy sale that evening, so do bring some cash along with you and a few items you may want to recycle. Any money raised will go to the Overseas fund.
