WEEKLY UPDATE 23rd February 2020

 This Sunday Digby will lead a panel discussion on faith and work. Thank you to those on the panel for your time and reflections and thank you to all who make our time together so rich and diverse.

There is a new roster out for March and April, copies available in the foyer.

Ash Wednesday service 26th Feb at 8pm

Our theme for Lent this year is ‘Into the Depths’. Sr Miriam from the Holy transfiguration community has agreed to share our preaching series during Lent and we will share communion each week as well. You may like to download this App to enhance your Lenten journey this year.

DEEP CALLS TO DEEP (EASTER APP) Launch into the Deep with an App from ABM’s Reconciliation Coordinator, Celia Kemp. Deep Calls to Deep is a 46 day journey into the mystery of the cross that begins in Holy Week and ends on Ascension Day. Readings, quotes and reflections for every day make this a feast of theological reflection and fuel for prayer, especially for those who already find themselves in stormy seas.

During Lent we will have a reflective service at 8pm on Thursday March 5, 12, 26, April 2 & 9th.

A commercial kitchen?

 We’d like to invite you to a Congregational Conversation on 1st March following our service of worship. To prepare for this, there are two things we’d love you to do:

  • Come to Community Kitchen on Monday, especially if you’ve not been for a while, so you have a picture of this ministry of our church
  • Engage in prayerful preparation using the conversation guide that is attached to the Weekly Update and available in the foyer.

This Congregational conversation is not a debate but a chance to talk and share what has come to us during our prayerful preparation.
