SERVICES IN THE BENEFICE
Do use the pattern of readings to spend some time in worship as a community and to pray for the needs of each other and the wider world at this time.
"Show me your ways O Lord, guide me in your truth for my hope is in you all day long."
Psalm 25 v 4-5

THE LENT COURSE “EXPLORING THE VOID”
The Lent Group continues to meet at The Rectory on a Thursday afternoon at 2:30pm. It is not too late to come along.
We are following a Lent course by Nicholas and Judith Calver, called “Exploring the Void” based on the film of the book by Joe Simpson entitled “Touching the Void” which recounts his and Simon Yates’s near fatal descent after climbing the 6,344 metre (20,814 feet) peak Siula Grande in the Peruvian Andes.
Copies of the course book “Exploring the Void” can be bought via Amazon or can be found second-hand on eBay or from World of Books.
A PRAYER FOR LENT
Let us pray:
Lord, we pray for your Church, that through this season of Lent we would be led to deeper truths about you and about ourselves.
Creator of all,
you brought this world into being from nothing and sent your Son into it, to redeem it at the cost of his life.
May we, who in this holy season commemorate his sufferings for us,
be brought to understand something of the depth of your love,
from which not one of us can be separated,
in Jesus Christ our Lord.
A PRAYER FOR MOTHERING SUNDAY
Loving God, we pray especially for mothers and for stepmothers, grandmothers, godmothers, and all those women who have loved and laughed, wept and worked to care for others.
Let us be a source of encouragement, support and friendship for them as they courageously accept this inspiring responsibility.
Bless all parents and all carers and strengthen those families living under stress.
We know that Mother’s Day is not a celebration but a time of heartache for many – may they have the comfort of knowing that your love for them is constant, your understanding is perfect, your compassion is never-ending.
