Lent is almost here...

LENT COURSE 2013     “What’s the point?”
That’s not a cry of despair but the title of this year’s Lent course, which asks what life is for, and what we are doing with the life we have been given.
GROUP 1 meets on Monday evenings 8 - 9.30pm in Seal Vicarage. Feb 18, 25, March 4, 11
GROUP 2 meets on Wednesday mornings 11am - 12.30pm in Seal Vicarage. Feb 20, 27, March 6, 13
Both courses led by Anne.  To book a place, please sign the list in church or contact me.
You can also join in online with a quote a day to ponder about life and what we do with it. These will be posted each day from Ash Wednesday (Feb 13) here on the church blog, facebook page and twitter. There are a limited number of paper copies of these in church on the table by the lectern.

ASH WEDNESDAY There will be a said service of Holy Communion with the Imposition of Ashes on Ash Wednesday, Feb 13, at 8pm. During this said service in modern language, which begins the season of Lent, we reflect on the things which we would like to change in our lives and our world, asking for God’s forgiveness and help. The congregation is invited to receive the sign of the cross in ash on their foreheads, though no one has to have this if they would rather not. There will also be a Communion service (Book of Common Prayer) at 10 am as usual. This will not include the imposition of ashes.  All are welcome
