*** General Information and Diary Dates ***

Ash Wednesday

Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, which this year falls on Wednesday 26th February. We will be having a service of Holy Communion with the Imposition of Ashes at 7.30pm. Please do join us if you can.

 

Lent Course

Our Lent Course this year is produced by Operation Noah and is called, “Tenants of the King”. 

Through interactive group sessions, video interviews with leading Christian thinkers and insightful Bible commentary, this resource will help us to reflect on the challenges of a changing climate, and how Christians can respond with hope to one of today’s greatest challenges.

We will run the course twice, in a morning and an evening, so please choose the time best for you, or switch between them as you need to.

Wednesdays: 10.30am-12pm - beginning 4th March

Wednesdays: 7.30-9pm - beginning 4th March

 

Lent Lunch

The list of dates and venues for the Lent Lunches is on the noticeboard in the lobby at church. We are hosting the lunch on Saturday 7th March. Please watch for details on how to help.

 

Our Twinned Parish

As you hopefully remember, we now have a link with the Carrigaline Union of two parishes in the Diocese of Cork, Cloyne and Ross, in the Church of Ireland. Over the coming months we will explore how to develop this link. But one way is to look at their website and to follow/like them on Facebook. Please look at the following links:
