Lent and Ash Wednesday

Lent reminds us, therefore, that Christian life is a never-ending combat in which the “weapons” of prayer, fasting and penance are used. Fighting against evil, against every form of selfishness and hate, and dying to oneself to live in God is the ascetic journey that every disciple of Jesus is called to make with humility and patience, with generosity and perseverance.

Pope Benedict XVI, 2006

World Day of Prayer

Please come and support the World Day of Prayer, formerly the Women’s World Day of Prayer, in Emmanuel United Reformed Church in St Michaels Road. The
service will start at 2.30pm on Friday 1st March; it has been prepared by an ecumenical group of women in Slovenia entitled “Come – Everything is Ready”. It is a wonderful opportunity to pray in the company of many other Christians.
