A Prayer Cross for Lent PrayerCross

The last two years as a Partnership we have united in prayer during Lent.

A small wooden prayer cross and prayer moves around all our churches and, if given to you, you are invited to pray using the accompanying prayer and then pass it on the next day.

At this time of uncertainty and change which lies ahead of us as a Partnership it is important to unite in prayer together. This period of Lent gives us the opportunity.

The Prayer Cross will start its Lenten journey at the Ash Wednesday service in Woodditton and will finish at the Good Friday Service. If you are given the cross please pass it along in order to give everyone the chance to be part of this.

With best wishes and blessings for this Lent time, Tracy Grimster (Tel: 721150)
