A service for the Beginning of Lent, 1st March 2pm at St Mary’s, Shrewton.
All welcome to join us for this solemn annual service to mark the beginning of our great Lenten fast.
Lent in 2017
The Diocese have produced a booklet called ‘Praying Together’ specifically for our use in the parish during Lent this year. Copies of the booklet are available for every parishioner, and can be collected from each church in the parish. In addition, those who wish may download the same material as an app for tablet or smartphone (called Prayer Mate), or go to the Diocesan website where they can download/print the material for free.
Lent Study Group
The Bible Study group which currently meets monthly on Tuesdays in Shrewton will be following a book during Lent called ‘Abraham’ by Meg Warner. The Lent group will begin on 28th Feb at 7.30pm and continue weekly throughout Lent. If you would like to be part of this then please contact Heather Brearey (01980 621851) for more details.
Suggested Reading in Lent
David Walters would like to recommend this book: “Waiting on the Word by Malcolm Guite. A poem and reflection for each day of Lent and for Easter. (Advent, Christmas and Epiphany was really good).” If you have a book you’d like to recommend please let us know and we’ll add it to our list!
It is back due to popular demand …
