*Lent Series at All Saints*


Evening worship for Trinity is usually at combined services at All Saints.  During Lent, these services will be around the theme of the significance of various places in the life of Jesus as recorded in Mark's gospel.  It promises to be interesting.  The first service will be this evening on the theme "Rivers and Deserts" and will be led by Rev.Keith Underhill.  The series extends for six weeks ending on Palm Sunday, March 25th.  Unfortunately, these services clash on two occasions with communion services at Trinity, which we shall not wish to neglect.


The themes will be.

18th February       Rivers and deserts

25th February       Synagogues and villages

4th March             The sea and boats

11th March           Houses and Homes

18th March           On the way/road

25th March           Jerusalem
