THEME: What is Lent?

Hope you can join us then.
What to expect:

A warm welcome – Refreshments – Craft activities – Celebration worship
A story – Songs – Prayer
Messy church is something different.
It's about people who want to do church differently and want to
share it with others.
Children must be accompanied by a parent of guardian.

The Diocese of Gloucester’s vision for the next five years is LIFE.

Daily Prayer

The Church has a tradition of daily prayer which embraces the three key elements of praise, intercession and engagement with scripture.

This page links to the C of E Daily Prayer website allowing us all to join in this daily pattern of prayer. When using the Offices individually read both the priest's and people's part.

The Offices are from the Book of Common Worship for today GMT.
