Dear friends, brothers and sisters in Christ

Greetings to all of you in the precious Name of Jesus
We are now well into the season of Lent. A time of reflection, self-denial and a good old fashioned spiritual ‘spring clean’. I love this season, there is nothing fancy about it, we strip out from Church life various man made things and get back to simple and lovely Christianity.

Mothering Sunday comes mid-way through Lent. A time for family, yes, although its origin was that people who worked away from home or perhaps were in service made their way back to their ‘Mother Church’ and were re-united with their family there. After worship a family get together ensued and some people would break the Lenten fast to celebrate, so the idea of refreshment Sunday was born.
Easter is very early this year, in fact it falls on 1st April. We take our date for Easter from the lunar calendar and Jewish festivals so it appears to move around each year.
This year we are hoping to enjoy a Passover Party on Maundy Thursday – the day before Good Friday. This is an attempt to get back to the Last Supper or as near as we can manage it. It is a full meal, there is a riotous time when the children go on a ‘treasure hunt’ of sorts, more than a few moments of misbehaviour and then a time of deep quiet when our meal becomes Holy Communion. We invite you all to come as we do to all our services. On Good Friday the service is led by the children and young people of the Parish and then we have the joys of Easter Day. Death is defeated, the grave is overthrown, Christ conquers death and offers us a share in that victory.

As the world continues to slide ever deeper into crisis, it’s worth pointing out a few truths.
There are far more pleasant people out there than nasty ones.
Our message of love is needed more now than ever before.
If the folk of the Parish would like to come and join us for
worship and become more involved in the life of the Church,
we stand a better chance of pushing back the darkness of hate and intolerance that seems to pervade our land.
We continue to support the food bank and various good causes.
If you want to become involved, please let us know.

May I on behalf of the Church, wish you all a very happy Easter.
May you know the blessings of salvation and joy in The Lord.

Christ is Risen, He is risen indeed – alleluia.

Love in Jesus,
Rev. Dave x x x
