Mark for Lent 2021

Readings for Lent 2021

Dear Friends, 

Thank you for all your support and encouragement for the ministry of the church. This coming Wednesday will be Ash Wednesday which marks the beginning of Lent.

1)    Because of COVID, we are continuing to record all our services of worship.  As well as the weekly recorded Sunday services, there will be additional services as follows:
  • Ash Wednesday (17th February) - there will be a service of the Word, to begin the period of Lent.
  • In Holy Week, there will be Holy Communion on Maundy Thursday (1st April).
  • On Good Friday, there will be worship suitable for all, as well as a 'Three-hour Devotional Service'.
  • On Easter Sunday, there will be a service of Holy Communion.

2)    I have prepared a series of short readings from the Gospel of Mark which you may find helpful during the days of Lent. See attached programme.   Mark for Lent Programme.pdf 

3)    From the Croydon Churches Forum we have received a pdf version of the Transform Croydon 2021 prayer booklet - please find it attached here below. "You will be encouraged to see how the Croydon church has responded to the pandemic and has adapted to difficult conditions with great resilience and fortitude". The booklet can be used to pray for the various ministries and initiatives.   CCF Transform Croydon prayer booklet 2021.pdf 

In all things, may God be praised!
