There are some paintings in the North Aisle from the Art Class in the Parish Hall. If anyone would like them, even just for the frames, please help yourselves.

Eco-tips: A dripping tap can be not only annoying but if it is a hot tap it can cost you in both water costs and water heating costs. Remember, water also has a carbon footprint associated with it from processing.


Charity of the Season: MIND

Mind is a mental health charity in England and Wales. Founded in 1946 as the National Association for Mental Health, it celebrated its 70th anniversary in 2016. Mind offers information and advice to people with mental health problems and lobbies government and local authorities on their behalf

The Lent Course this is year is based on the TV film Broken which was broadcast last year. The course subtitle is ‘a course about real life and real faith’. The aim is that it will help us to engage with the realities of life and how they can be framed by faith in Jesus Christ.

 As Leonard Cohen said: ‘there is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in’.

You do not have to have seen the film to engage with the course, but you can borrow it from Tony if you want to see it.

It will be based in the Parish Hall on Wednesdays beginning on March 13th at 7.30pm
