Ash Wednesday
We were denied the Imposition of Ashes on Ash Wednesday because of health restrictions. Instead, George painted this cross from the ashes of last year's palm crosses during the penitential liturgy of our Holy Communion at St Bart's. This icon will accompany us at our services throughout Lent as we walk the way of the cross: "Remember that dust thou art and unto dust thou shalt return"

In place of a Saturday Lent Group this year, George will be streaming a short (5-10 mins) series of six addresses on the subject "We are Pontius Pilate's Brothers & Sisters". These will be posted by 9am on Saturday mornings. Select the video below to see this week's Reflection or the image below the video to see all the Lent Reflections.

Resumption of service
We are delighted to confirm that as from Sunday 21 February, we shall be able to welcome the congregation back to our services.

It is planned that we continue with both our Sunday services as detailed in the Parish Diary, going forward, so please refer to the new diary for details. If you cannot get to church to collect a copy, please refer to the website for details. We shall stream a service each week for the foreseeable future and, of course, It is our hope that, as the vaccination programme continues to roll out, more people will feel confident in returning to our services in person as we seek to come together as the Body of Christ.
Naturally, all the guidance for face coverings and social distancing will continue to be followed until such times as this is relaxed.
