Lent 4 and Mothering Sunday
Welcome to the weekly message for the Fourth Sunday of Lent which is also Mothering Sunday.
Sadly, because of current restrictions this week, we are unable to give out the traditional flower posies at our Sunday Worship Services. But as mentioned in this week’s ‘Reach Out’ instead there is a Cross outside the church so that flowers may be placed on it in grateful thanks for those who have mothered us.
This Sunday there will be a 09:00 Holy Communion from the FEPOW Chapel which will be live-streamed to our YouTube Channel:
And the 10:00am Parish Communion from the Abbey nave which will be live-streamed to our Facebook page:
At both services we will limit the numbers to a maximum of 30.
There is an online Zoom Sunday school this week at 11:00am (let me know if you’d like to join so a link can be sent to you).
As usual we will also gather at 11:30am via Zoom on Sunday for the weekly coffee and natter.
