Weekday Worship

This is a new format that will take place on the 1st Thursday of every month starting on the 7th February at 7.30pm at Crick. There is a supper dish followed by coffee with cake, and then a relaxed worship with a talk. The theme for this spring will be 'Heroes of Faith - from the Bible to the Present Day'. This promises to be a highly interesting series of interest to everyone!

On Ash Wednesday there was a Holy Communion with imposition of Ashes at 10.30am (Crick) and 7.30pm (Yelvertoft).

Lent

Lent Lunches took place on 20th & 27th February, 6th, 13th & 20th March, starting at 11.00am at Crick. The format is Holy Communion followed by lunch and a music recital, and finished by 1.00pm.

Bible Group and Cafe Church

The Bible Group embarked on a new season on 14th February at 7.30pm, (at 4 Bury Dyke, Crick, thanks to Ray & Carol). The first book of the Bible to be considered is Ruth, and it would be helpful if people intending to join in could read through this book beforehand. The Group meet on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month.

Cafe Church is a week earlier than usual on Thursday 30th May at 7.30pm at Crick. A meal followed by worship - all welcome.
