40 days of Prayer

Please join us in 40 days of prayer this Lent.

Loving Father, bless the community of St. Martin’s with your love, compassion and care. Fill us with your Spirit that we might walk in your ways. Open our eyes to see your hand at work in our lives and glorify your name through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Upcoming special events for Lent:

Ash Wednesday – 5th March

We will mark the start of Lent with services at 12 noon and 6pm on Ash Wednesday. Both services will include the opportunity to receive the imposition of ashes as a mark of this season of penitence. The 6pm service will be Holy Communion. All welcome.

Lent Course

Last week 27 Anglican bishops wrote an open letter to the government to protest about people going hungry in the UK. This is part of the End Hunger Fast campaign (see www.endhungerfast.co.uk). The Lent course is called Parables & Possessions and looks at issues of poverty and our relationship with money.

It will be on Wednesday evenings from 7.30pm in the Training Room starting on Wednesday 12th March. Please speak to Dom if you are interested.

More events will be added forthwith.
