With an early Easter, we dive into Lent in mid-February. As previous years, we share a lent course with our Methodist partners. We keep to the tradition of Wednesday gatherings in the Parish Rooms on Burnside Grove meeting from 2:20 pm until approximately 4:00 pm. This year we focus on a series of passages from Mathew’s Gospel. The dates and themes are shown below:-
February 14th – The Ash Wednesday Service of Holy Communion – Methodist preacher including imposition of ashes.
February 21st: Jesus foretells his Passion (Mathew 26:1-16).
February 28th – The final hours with the 12 (Mathew 26-17-41).
March 7th – The arrest and trial of Jesus (Mathew 26-42-end).
March 14th – Jesus before Pilate (Mathew 27-1-26).
March 21st – His death and burial (Mathew 27-27-26).
The sessions have been very helpful in the past and are a very good way to prepare our hearts and minds for Easter. Please think of joining us for some or all of these times of study and reflection.
