I don’t know whether Lent is one of those seasons you ignore, attempt to give something up or take something up. The season of lent is helpful as it directs Christian thought towards the cross and provides space to help us reflect or to pause and remember central concerns of our faith. As a church community we have been asking ourselves some important questions about who we are and what we are about – it’s an ongoing conversation but is helping us to think about how we use the resources we have and the things we should be focussed upon.
We are pleased to welcome Debbie Beeken as the new Children’s Centre Co-ordinator for Yiewsley Children’s Centre. Debbie is responsible for the day to day running of the centre and looking after the staff – do pop in and say hello.
There are a few community events taking place over the next few weeks see below for more details but here are some highlights…
March 29th see the return of the International Dinner (if you’ve not been before you really should come and check it out). It is more of a feast than a dinner and includes delicious dishes from around the world. 1st April we will celebrate Easter Sunday and as Christian’s this is the most central day for us and we like to have a joyful celebration – all are welcome to join with us in our time of worship.
We are also starting to think and plan for the Community Fun Day… we have 30th June pencilled in the diary and will be looking for people to get involved or charities, community groups and businesses to be part of this fun filled day.
So as we journey to the cross and the death of Jesus on what we know as Good Friday we look beyond to his resurrection and new life and celebration of Easter Sunday and beyond.
