Summer starts here at Church on the Corner. We’re choosing to take things a little more slowly, to enjoy the simple things. And we will be reflecting together on the lovely epistle to the Philippians.

Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday, which is of course the start of Lent. As we said on Sunday, Lent is intended not to be a time of hardship, but instead an invitation to follow Jesus into the wilderness and find restoration for the soul. “In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength” If you weren’t with us, or would like a recap, you can find the notes on the sermons page.
Ash Wednesday Service.We will be holding a service of  signing with Ashes and Communion at 7.45pm at St Andrews.
Daily Prayer during Lent. This is the order of Morning prayer that we will be praying together in the Parish during Lent. You would be welcome to use this each day or whenever you can as a structure for your prayers.
The Archbishop of Canterbury’s Lent Book. In a time of division and conflict on all sorts of levels in our society this is a wise suggestion for Lent reading by ++Justin.
Reconciliation by Muthuraj Swamy is a rich series of reflections on that central theme of the Bible and how it can be worked out on a personal, communal and global stage. It is broken into 40 short daily readings – one for each day of Lent. Highly recommended.
Prayer before Church. As Helen said on Sunday, some of us will be gathering in the chapel each Sunday evening before church at 6.15 to pray for church, parish and community, and for ourselves each week. Do join us if you can.

We have some amazing event lined up for the festive season, from the big event of our beautiful Carol service, our Christmas meal, Carol singing at our local care home, Beer and Carols at our local pub and our creative advent project which will be revealed each day through advent. Further details below.

Our Advent project is now live. Click here to open a new door each day.

Advent is a time of beginnings. It is the start of the church calendar, and a time for hoping and praying. It is the fast that enriches the feast of Christmas.

Our annual advent project will begin in December, and as usual  the COTC extended family near and far will contribute to our reflections.

As usual we are exploring a theme you are invited to sign up for one of the 25 days to contribute and image you have created or curated, along with a short descriptive text. Over the month we will create an online advent calendar of these images.

The theme is one which has come out of our sermon series this autumn. It is

Redemption

Spend some time prayerfully reflecting on that theme and get to work creating or finding an image. Perhaps you can find some inspiration here. If you would like to participate, drop us a line, and you will be allocated a day. We will start the unveiling when Advent starts on 2nd December.
