Special Lent Lunches & Services in the Leam Valley Benefice: February, March and on Palm Sunday.

Lent 2007 will start with a celebration of the Eucharist at 7.30pm in All Saints Church, Leamington Hastings on 21st February. This will be followed by a series of Ecumenical Services on Thursday evenings in different churches which will look at different aspects of the story of the ‘Prodigal Son’.

On March 1st this will be at St Nicholas’ Church, Willoughby, at 7.30pm and on March 8th, at the same time at Broadwell Methodist chapel.

On 15th March the service will be held at 7.30pm at St Peter’s Church, Grandborough, and here at St Mark’s, Flecknoe, on 22nd March also at 7.30pm.

The final service will be held at Grandborough Methodist chapel on March 29th.

During lent simple lunches will be held in each Parish on Wednesdays in the same week as the lent service. Our lunch in Flecknoe will be held on 21st March and will be hosted by Ann Absalom at Elizabeth House. A collection will be made at these lunches for Sebokeng, a Parish just outside Johannesburg in South Africa, which has been supported by Leamington Hastings Church since 1996.

It is hoped that at the end of Lent a Sebokeng choir will join us for a very special service of celebration at Leamington Hastings church at 6.30pm on Palm Sunday, April 1st.

Coffee Morning: Friday 23rd February

Meet Jane Close, our new Vicar!

There will be a Coffee Morning on Friday 23rd February from 10am to 12 noon, very kindly hosted by PCC member Sara Jolley at Underwood Cottage, Flecknoe.

This Flecknoe coffee morning will be a good ice-breaking opportunity for recent arrivals to the village to meet other residents, and also a chance for any villagers who have not yet met her to be introduced to Jane Close, our new Leam Valley Vicar.

Hopefully, recent snow problems will have melted away in time for our ice-breaker!
