Lent

The Lent course for 2017 picks up on Jo Cox's maiden speech, and looks at some of the areas where we might find division and brokenness in society, and how we might come to see ourselves having #More in common.

Each week's theme will be introduced in the  Sunday sermon, but if you aren't there, we'll provide some bullet points in the session to help you. Session times & venues are printed just below this introduction.

Please come and share Lent with us!

Prayer Cafe

Prayer Cafe

                While we sit around small tables covered in blue and white table clothes, we are served afternoon tea, a selection of small sandwiches, cakes and scones. As we eat we talk about things that may be happening in our lives, our concerns, whether personal, local, or worldwide, making notes as we talk. Not too long later we move a few yards to the Lady Chapel, where we then have an informal short service and our notes are turned into prayers.

Knit and Natter

We meet every Monday, except bank holidays, from 2:00 until 3:30pm.

Knitting for a good cause and Nattering for fun.  Usually there are around a dozen people come along every week, 

we can provide wool and knitting needles, even a little tuition if needed.

Recently we've sent five blankets and twelve hats to help premature babies in Ghana.

Please join us if you feel you would like to contribute, or if you prefer just to natter that's OK too.

We’d love to welcome you, there is no charge and includes light refreshments.
