Ash Wednesday – 14 February

Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent, a season of self-examination, repentance and preparation for Easter. Since the Middle Ages, Christians have observed the start of Lent by having their foreheads marked in ash with the sign of the cross as a gesture of penitence and as a recognition of mortality.  All are welcome to join us for our Ash Wednesday services:

12.30pm: Eucharist with Litany (Holy Family Chapel)

8pm: Eucharist with the Imposition of Ashes (Nave)

Christingle for Candlemas

Please join us on Sunday, 28 January from 5-5.45pm for our Christingle service, at which we will celebrate the Light of Christ at Candlemas.  This family service is open to people of all ages!
