New Pattern of Worship
Following on from consultations last year, we agreed on a new pattern of joining together to worship as a parish every first Sunday of the month at 10am as well as continuing to gather as a parish on the fifth Sunday (except this January). Our Parish service together 5th Feb will be at Holy Trinity, Bothenhampton celebrating Candlemas (the presentation of Christ in the Temple).
On 5th March, which falls on the Second Sunday of Lent, we will be at Holy Trinity, Bradpole and are delighted that Sir Ghillean Prance [former Director of the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew and a prominent botanist and ecologist] will be with us as we consider our faith in the light of climate change and caring for the planet.
On 2nd April we will come together for Palm Sunday at St Mary’s, Bridport as we move into Holy Week. This is Rev’d Pete Stone’s last service in the Parish.
On Easter Eve we will come together at St Swithun’s and hope to eat together first as we prepare for the dawning of the resurrection day.
On Sunday 30th April for the Fifth Sunday we will gather together for worship as a parish at 10am followed by a consultation to see where we are and how the new pattern is working. Look out for a full list of up-coming events and services.
