Just a reminder that Rev Lorna Brabin-Smith will be licensed as our new Rector on 17 March 2016 at 7.30 pm at All Saints, Branston. If you would like to come perhaps you could let me know so we have a rough idea for catering purposes. We have waited a long time for a new Rector and while we are very grateful to the retired priests who have looked after us for so long (Les Whitfield, Tim Thompson and the late Terry Stokes), we are looking forward to welcoming Lorna to our parishes. Lorna will lead our worship in Nocton for the first time on Easter Day, Sunday 27 March. We hope to have a full church...

Nowadays Lent has become a largely misunderstood time, when people give up something (usually chocolate or alcohol) as a reminder of the traditional Lenten fast and a means of self discipline. This has about as much to do with Lent as novelty Easter eggs have to do with the resurrection! Instead of (or as well as!) giving up the booze for a few weeks, why not try making a positive difference in your life? To use the other form of words for 'ashing', 'Repent and believe in the Gospel.'
