Protector of all who trust in you,
you led your people through the desert
and brought them to a land of plenty.
Guide us as we journey through Lent.
Fill us with your spirit of love.
Preserve us from all harm
and bring us safely to our destination.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
The season of Lent provides us with a fresh opportunity to grow in faith and commitment to our Lord. Please take advantage of that which is on offer as, together with Christians throughout the world, we take to heart the call to repentance and the assurance of forgiveness which is proclaimed in the gospel.
10.15am & 7.30pm Holy Communion and Imposition of Ashes
Thursday Mornings in Lent
Each Thursday morning (beginning on the 2nd March) the Eucharist will be celebrated (according to the Book of Common Prayer) in St Catherine’s Chapel at 7.30am. Getting up early (in the dark) may seem like an inconvenience but it is good discipline and an opportunity to be with Jesus, under the form of bread and wine, in a quiet and reflective setting. A light breakfast will be available after the service.
Ecumenical Lent Lunches
Thursdays at 12.00 noon
From the 2nd of March in the Costello Centre in Baliffgate. A short meditation followed by a simple lunch of soup, rolls and cheese. Hosted throughout Lent by each of the Christian congregations in Alnwick.
Lent Boxes will be available in church from the Sunday before Ash Wednesday. This year we will be supporting the Church Mission Society (CMS) in their Christian mission to bring hope and freedom to the world.
An Extra Act of Worship
Perhaps you could find a little extra time in addition to your Sunday worship this Lent. Why not come along to a midweek Eucharist – or to Evensong on a Sunday night. Making that little extra effort may be just what you need to add a special dimension to your spiritual life.
A Celebration of Healing and Wholeness
Sunday, 12th March at 6pm
The Church’s Ministry of Healing including (for those who wish) the laying on of hands and anointing.
