“Then he called the crowd to him along with his disciples and said: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me and for the gospel will save it.” Mark 8: 34-35

There will be a physical service of Holy Communion for Ash Wednesday at Holy Trinity Church at 11.30am on Wednesday 17th February.
Additionally, the Diocese in Europe are also streaming a Service of Evening Prayer on the diocesan YouTube channel on Wednesday 17th February at 7.30pm – click here to join the virtual Youtube service.
In Living His Story, the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Lent Book 2021, Hannah Steele uncovers liberating and practical ways of sharing the gospel story afresh. With warmth and encouragement, she shows us how we can live Jesus’ story in our own lives simply by being the people God made us and allowing people to be drawn to him through our natural gifts. The book is widely available and there is also an e-reader format.
If you would like a copy and you have any difficulty obtaining one, (for whatever reason) please get in touch with Charlotte.
The Church of England has produced a study guide to go alongside this book which is free to download from the Church of England website.
We will be following the book and the study guide in our Bible study groups, starting this Tuesday 16th February (10:30am) and Wednesday 17th February (8pm) – everyone is very welcome to join.
