Lent, Holy Week & Easter

Hello everyone - time for a little update about special things going on over the next few weeks, as we move through Lent, starting on Ash Wednesday (Feb. 14th), on to Holy Week and Easter Day.

(It's not often you get to preach an Easter sermon on April Fools' Day, but this is it!)

Please join in anything of interest over the coming weeks. The regular services are on the Coastal Parishes Calendar.

In particular, please note the two "Table Talk" sessions (March 5th and 15th): cafe-style groups, using discussion starters on the theme of Easter - stimulating (we hope) and suitable for everyone. Bring your friends!
