On Fridays at St.Mary’s Mid-day Prayer is said followed by a Lent lunch.  This is open to all the churches of the Benefice and to our sister Churches ecumenically.

The Benefice Lent Book this year is Looking Through the Cross by Revd Dr Graham Tomlin.

This is also The Archbishop of Canterbury’s Lent book.  This can be obtained via Amazon at a cost of £6.99p

Ruth Coombs will be leading a course in the Benefice Office based on the Benefice Lent Book each Sunday 4.45pm to 5.45pm before Evensong.  Please contact Ruth for registration.
