This Week in the Parish

Lent Course: On Monday evenings during Lent, our weekly ‘Praise, Prayer & Study Group’ is now our Lent Group.        The format remains the same, but the study element has a Lent theme. If you’ve not been before, please give it a try!

News: Last Sunday, the Ven Jonathan Gough was licensed as the new Archdeacon of Richmond & Craven and installed as a Canon of Ripon Cathedral, and on Thursday, Revd Lynn Thorius was installed as an Honorary Minor Canon, too.

Coming up: On Saturday 30th March, 9.30am to 1pm, sees the launch of termly Teaching & Reflection Mornings, to be held in St Cuthbert’s Community Hall. Please put this date in your diary and come along. Sue Bianco, our Reader-in-Training on placement with us, is kindly leading this one, and will be focussing our thinking on how Jesus grew in his relationship with his Father, & therefore how we do so, too.

Thanks: We've started a new preaching series on the famous 'I am' sayings in John's gospel. Andrew, the vicar, preached on the first of these: 'I am the bread of life'. It was good to welcome members of King's Church again, and, with nearly 30 present, it was great to sing God's praises together.

Reminder: Renewing the Electoral Roll: This year, 2019, we are having a complete re-start with the Electoral Roll. Everyone who wishes to be on it must now complete an application form and return it to Chris Whitmee, Marie Smalley or myself.

A Confirmation Preparation group will meet from 6.30-8pm on the following Sunday evenings: 3rd, 10th, 17th & 24th March. Please put those in your diary if you have spoken to me & are expecting to be confirmed on April 7th by Bishop Helen-Ann.
