Lent Appeal 2022

This year we have been asked to help support The Anglican Orphanage for Babies in the Asante Mampong Diocese of Ghana. The home was originally built in 1957 by the Sisters of the Holy Paraclete from Whitby in Yorkshire. The home is currently caring for 45 babies, but the building is in desperate need of repair and renovation. Please consider setting aside some money each week in Lent for this very worthy cause. You can give by cash on Sundays or click here to donate online.

Contemplative Prayer

Contemplative Prayer in profound silence has a long history in the church, dating back to the second century. Our Silent Prayer Group meets monthly in S.Paul’s Church and is led by Judy Powell who is a Licensed Lay Minister in the parish and an experienced Spiritual Director. In Lent she is offering a taster session for those new to contemplative prayer at 1pm on Tuesday March 10th. All welcome.
