“Send us out”

Lent courses have been a traditional offering at Saint Paul’s for many years.  While we understand that regular attendance of a group throughout the year isn’t possible for everyone, we encourage the whole congregation to be part of a group during Lent.
Our course for 2011, entitled “Send Us Out”, has been specially created for us at Saint Paul’s.  The five sessions focus on how we live and work for God in our day-to-day life.

There will be three groups this year –
  ◊  Tuesday evenings, 7:30pm at Saint Paul’s (first session 15th March)
  ◊  Wednesday mornings, 9:30am at Saint Paul’s (first session 16th March)
  ◊  Friday evenings, 7:30pm at Bridget and Lenny Campbell’s house (first session 18th March).

Look out for the sign-up sheet at church from this Sunday.

On Friday March 4th 2011 women from around the world will celebrate the Women’s World Day of Prayer.
The service has been written by the women of Chile. It is an appropriate theme for bread is eaten at every meal and is very much part of every day life. The women of Chile offer what it means to them as they share this service with us.

Join us at Saint Paul’s on the 4th March at 7.30pm.
