Lent Bible Studies
Coupled to the special series of services in Lent (see Services and Hymns page for details) there will be some Bible Studies exploring each week’s theme more deeply as we work together towards a Mission Action Plan for the Parish. These meetings are open to all and will be held as follows:
Mondays 2.00 to 3.30pm – 37 Kenmor Avenue, BL8 2DY
Tuesdays 7.00 to 8.30pm – Porch Room, St Stephen’s Church, Bury, BL8 2PU
Water Aid – St Stephen’s are supporting this great charity during the period of Lent.
Monthly Prayer Meeting – Wednesday 21st March 7.00pm
In the Gospels, Jesus calls us to pray so we have set up a prayer meeting in church at 7.00pm for 30 minutes on the third Wednesday of each month, with the next one on 21st March. They will be led by one of our own and follow the pattern of compline. There will be opportunities to take part either aloud or quietly, whichever you are most comfortable with. The important things is that we pray. So come along and let’s hear what God has to say to us and do with us in Elton.
