Activities in Lent
- Morning Prayer. Some people are making it a discipline for Lent to attend Morning Prayer each weekday morning at 9.15. Please feel free to join in. If you go to the Church of England website and click on this link https://www.churchofengland.org/prayer-and-worship/join-us-in-daily-prayer/morning-prayer-contemporary-thursday-18-february-2021 you will find the prayers and readings for every day. You can either pray privately or with a group of people who are praying for our parishes every day.
- Lent Courses. This year we are going to be studying the psalms together, that most ancient of prayer books that Jesus himself used each day. Following a guide from one of the world's leading Old Testament scholars, Walter Brueggemann, we will find how praying the psalms can sustain us through times of security, when we are confident about where we are; times of disorientation, when we feel lost; and times when we find ourselves again, experiencing God's deliverance. There will be two groups. One group will meet on Wednesday evenings at 7 pm for one hour. The other group will meet on Thursday lunchtimes at 12.30 for one hour. Why don't you sit down with a bowl of soup and rolls and your favourite cuppa and make a donation to a Lent charity?
- Lectio Divina. Why not learn an ancient way of praying with the bible that was developed by the Benedictines 1500 years ago. All you need is a bible in your favourite version. We are all beginners. We meet every Thursday afternoon at 4 pm for one hour and we are currently praying together through John’s Gospel.
Each one of these activities is available to any who want to join them via Zoom. The Meeting ID is 845-168-9869 & the password is available from the Parish Office.
All-Age Worship on the 2nd Sunday of each Month.

A new scam has been reported in which a person receives a text saying they need to book a vaccination appointment via a link, which takes them to a fake NHS form asking for bank details to prove their identity.
Please be aware that bank info would never be requested.

Every Thursday afternoon at 4 pm a group of us are meeting to learn how to read the bible prayerfully using an ancient practice developed first by the Benedictines called Lectio Divina, or Holy Reading.
