February 2018 News & Notes

Fun feedback from review
Overall the reactions to our Christmas worship were really positive. There was a huge variety of meaningful occasions in an amazing range of locations, from traditional Church Carols, to open-air and pub services. Fun was much in evidence too. As you can see from this picture, the Spice Ship renamed Rev James for the night.

Feb 12, Ash Wednesday, and praying
We are invited to marks the start of Lent, when fasting begins in preparation for Easter. Some give up chocolate, but it's also an opportunity to do something new. Why not join a housegroup, or take part regularly in one of many opportunities for weekly prayer? In particular why not use one of the prayer booklets, based on Mark's Gospel, and available in our Churches.

Feb 18, Broadwey join OsmingtonOn third Sundays St Nicholas and St Osmund have joined together in Broadwey. This month the shared worship is Osmington at 11.15am. Why not join too?

Feb 25, Witness at St FrancisLorraine and her team host worship for Churches across the borough. It will include the launch of Spring into Life, which visits all the schools in our area.

Always a welcome at ChurchIn terms of variety, you could hardly have more choice, from Churches in farmyards to ancient and modern, from informal to traditional, from half an hour to an hour and a half. So, come and make yourself at home.

Answers to last month's window puzzlesThe pelican feeding her youngsters is a detail in Holy Trinity, Bincombe. It is an image used by Corpus Christi College, Oxford as a representation of Holy Communion. The spelling mistake is in St Osmund, Osmington. We're blessed with many aesthetic features in the buildings we use for worship.
