During recent years it has been my custom to share in the liturgy of the Lent Cross. The cross is made from the stem of a Christmas tree linking the two major festivals of Christmas and Easter.
During each Sunday of Lent a picture of the symbols we would usually place on the cross will appear on this page, together with an associated bible reading and a prayer

I’m pleased to bring your District another update about Action for Children’s work.
Happy New Year!
Although 2021 started with the lockdown still in place, we are grateful that we can continue to support children and families through the pandemic. We cannot count our blessings without mentioning our Methodist family. Thanks for your prayers and bountiful support.

All things Christmas – Thank you
Our heartfelt thanks to you for supporting us over Christmas. We marvel at how churches and individuals defied the pandemic and came up with creative ways to raise funds for us.
We were delighted to know that so many Methodists tuned in to Starry Night, our first-ever virtual carol service. We’re thrilled to say that overall, we sold tickets to 882 households and raised £31,453!
Our Secret Santas will also be pleased to know that our 2020 appeal raised over £1 million. By getting festive and supporting our appeal, you have made a life-changing difference to children and their families.

Count Your Blessings
What will you be doing this Lent? We would like you to join us for 40 days of making life better for children across the UK.
We have created an inspiring calendar of activities. Each day, you will be asked to do something meaningful. It might be giving money to those in need, saying a prayer for a child, or spreading the word about our work. So, download your copy from our website: http://bit.ly/AfC-Lent.
