Our Ash Wednesday Service is on Wednesday evening at 7:30pm. This is a quiet service of prayer and preparation for Lent, including ashing, for those who would like to participate, having the sign of the cross made in ash on your forehead. It is a moving way to begin the Lent journey towards Easter. All welcome.
Ash Wednesday Service at 7:30pm
Lent is approaching, and Ash Wednesday offers us the opportunity to prepare ourselves and mark the beginning of Lent with a special Ash Wednesday evening service on Wednesday 2nd March at 7:30pm at St James. The service includes traditional ashing and Holy Communion and will be led by Rev’d Tim and Rev’d Wenda. All are welcome to join this special midweek time of prayer and preparation.
Ash Wednesday Service
We will be holding an Ash Wednesday Service in the churchyard complete with ashing at 4pm on Wednesday to mark the beginning of Lent. Please dress warmly and bring a mask with you, as these will be needed briefly during the ashing part of the service itself.
