Time to reflect during Lent

There will be plenty of space for contemplating and listening to God at the church during Lent this year.

Between now and Easter Day the church will be open every Thursday from 10am  for an hour if you need a place for quiet personal reflection. There will be no led prayer meeting or set liturgy to follow. No person you have to talk with or preacher to listen to. Just stillness and time in a busy world to think clearly and be who you are before God.

If you like the idea of sharing your Lenten journey with other Christians then you are welcome to join the Churches Together in St Ives Lent course being hosted at All Saints Parish Church every Monday from 11am. They will be following the well known York Course with each week being led by a different leader from one of the churches in the town. Lunch is provided after each session for you stay and enjoy.

If this is not for you but you still want something help you think more deeply then why not check out the resource at YouVersion. There are daily Lent reflections as well as other Bible reading plans. You can visit the website everyday to read them or have them delivered direct to your computer inbox.

And finally, over the weekend of  22nd to 24th March we will be having a 24/7 Prayer room as come together as a church for a time of prayer together. We have previously held them in the church and they have been an amazing time for people who have been involved. Watch out for more information on this over the next few weeks on how to sign up for your hour slot.

Of course as well as these things happening there are all the usual weekly activities that you are welcome to join us for.
