A Prayer Request from Mark & Rosalie Balfour

Can you pray…

Ash Wednesday

Wednesday February 14th 11.30am Stubbings

Holy Communion with 'Ashing'


Ash Wednesday marks the start of Lent - a penitential season, a season of refection and self-examination when we recognise our need of God's forgiveness. Please join us as we each receive the sign of the cross in ash on our forehead as a sign of our mortality and a symbol of our repentance.


Keith and Pam would like to thank everyone who sent them cards this Christmas, we very much enjoyed opening and reading them.
