Sunday 5th March 2017
Last Wednesday marked the beginning of the season of Lent – a time in the Christian calendar when we commit ourselves to prayer and reflection and the giving up (for a time) of little luxuries and donating what we save to a Partner Church for their ministry to needy people and communities.
To help us do this the Lent Event committee has provided us with a ‘pledge for Lent’ card, a sticker to place around a tin or jar in which to place the money we save and a giving envelope (All available in the porch from today)
Here at Athelstone there will be new information available each week about prayer resources and projects for Lent.
We are all encouraged to get involved by ’giving up and taking up‘ this Lent as an expression of our journey with Jesus to Easter.
This Lent, be part of God’s mission.
Sign up for ”Bread for the Road “ – reflections, ideas for action and videos straight to your inbox.

Our next ToFs meeting will be on Tuesday 7th March at 2pm here at the Church.
Our speakers will be Margie & Andrew Mount who worked with the Church of Christ in Vanuatu.
Jenny Hurst will now be sharing her experience of living in the Pilbara at our April 4th meeting.
Please join us for a cuppa and a great time of fellowship while listening to our speakers’ experiences.
