Lent begins on March 1st – Ash Wednesday.
It’s a great opportunity to learn, to pray,k to review our lives and our spiritual journeys.
We have an extensive programme of events – services, study groups, Lent Lunches and more.
We suggest that you tap in to the events which will help you keep a ‘Holy Lent’ – but the idea is to use the space creatively during Lent – not to feel you have to attend everything.
Click HERE for the programme, which is also available in the Parish Magazines or in Church.
All the Services in Fordingbridge are at 11.00a.m., at the Memorial Gates, Fordingbridge Rec, and those at Breamore at 7.00p.m. in the Church.
All very welcome.
If you are attending as a family member, we would be interested to hear from you beforehand.
|Wednesdays 30th November, 7th & 14th December, 11:30am Eucharist, followed by 11:45-1:15pm lunch in St Mary’s Church Hall, Fordingbridge. All are welcome to join us for our Advent lunches – soup, bread & cheese. (No charge)|
