LENT IS APPROACHING FAST WITH Ash Wednesday on 14th Feb. Before then;

* Please Return your last year's palm cross for burning for ash for use on Ash Wednesday.

* Take a Lent pilgrimage form and decide to sign up for The Pilgrimage or the Passion Walk.

* Save the date; Tues 13th Feb - PANCAKE EVENING; pancakes on sale from 5.30pm; Savoury at R8, sweet at R5.

* If you can't make the service on Ash Wednesday for ashing, you can still begin your Lent in this way by being ashed at the services on Sunday 18th February.

* What about attending Stations of the Cross on Tuesday evenings during Lent at 7pm.

Nomination sheets are out in the foyer in each congregation for the election of 3 local councillors per congregation. Nominations close on 4th February and the vote will take place over Sundays 11th and 18th February. Please give this serious thought.
