Minister's Message

             

 

 

 Dear friends

I hope this finds you safe and well as we continue our journey through the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown.

It's been a long, tough journey as we've been unable to see each other and meet and share fellowship as we normally would, but we've found other ways to keep in touch and continue to share the good news of the love of Jesus with each other and with our community.

We're now in the season of Lent, when we remember the 40 days Jesus spent in the wilderness preparing for his ministry, when he fasted and prayed and was tempted by the devil without success.

Christians often mark Lent with prayer and fasting, reflecting on the call to repent and turn back to God and seeking ways to deepen and grow in our faith in Jesus. Many people give things up for Lent as part of their personal discipline and prayer, but taking things up is another way to offer ourselves prayerfully to serve God. So we might take up a special daily quiet time for prayer and bible study, or resolve to buy more fairly traded goods, or speak out for people who are treated unjustly in our world.

However you decide to mark Lent this year, let's pray that this Lent will  be a time for change and renewal, for seeking God's heart for our lives, our churches and our world as we get to know Jesus better.

And let's try to make sure that when we get to Easter, we can look back and say that this Lent we did something special with God! 

Lenten blessings

Jane
