What Comes Next?

Happy Easter!

The start of our new service card for April - June coincides with Holy Week and Easter. Easter is the biggest festival in the Christian calendar and we continue to celebrate the good news of the risen Christ for as long as we have journeyed through Lent – 40 days. After 40 days we come to the Ascension and then 10 days later celebrate Pentecost, when we remember the coming of
the Spirit.

After all our celebrating we come to Trinity Sunday. Please note that this service will be an hour earlier, at 9am, to allow folks to come to Church but then return home as soon as the services finishes to take part in your local Street Party for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. If nothing is happening where you live, why not get involved in making it happen?

As our journey continues into what the Church creatively calls 'Ordinary Time' we start a sermon series based on the Lord's Prayer. Over the next 8 weeks we will look at a
line of the prayer and explore its meaning. This is part of our 2012, Year of Prayer and will hopefully help us to engage with the very familiar words of this well used prayer.

Yours In Christ,


Revd. Steve Bailey
