“There are times when solitude is better than society, and silence is wiser than speech. We should be better Christians if we were more alone, waiting upon God, and gathering through meditation on His Word spiritual strength for labour in his service. We ought to muse upon the things of God, because we thus get the real nutriment out of them…”  Charles H. Spurgeon

In just over two weeks, we will be entering the season of Lent, a holy time for deep personal reflection over the great love that God has for us in sending His Son to suffer on the cross to save us. I urge us all to sign up to a Home Group and spend time alone but with others as we journey through our Lent Studies. Although the Lent Study is put out by the Diocese, this will be a time of parish unity and sharing in Christ as we continue to pray for each other.

Make contact with one of the Group leaders and sign up for this wonderful journey:

We are currently working on a Group for young adults, so watch this space!

Blessings be yours as we walk together on the hill.
