Ash Wednesday - March 5th

Holy Communion 
11.00am at Long Crendon
 8.00pm at Chearsley
This day marks the first day of Lent. At the service, ashes from last year’s Palm Crosses, which have been burnt, are gently put on the forehead in the sign of a cross (only for those who wish it). Ashes are a very ancient symbol of penitence. They also remind us of our mortality; that the end of our human journey is the dust of death.  We have all, in the words of the Prayer Book,‘erred and strayed like lost sheep. We have followed too much the devices and desires of our own hearts. We have offended against thy holy laws. We have left undone those things we ought to have done and have done those things which we ought not to have done’. Penitence involves a change of heart and a turning again towards God in whom alone is our healing and our wholeness.

The Road Ahead
Where is my life leading?
An opportunity to ask "What am I living for?"

 is a friendly and informal way for anyone to investigate Christianity, or just brush up on the basics.  With the help of a DVD it explores who Jesus is, why he came and what it means to follow him.

You don't need to know anything about the Bible
You won't be asked to read aloud, pray or sing
You can ask any question you wish.

The series will run for 6 evenings on Wednesdays from 5th March in the Long Crendon Village Centre.  Itwill begin with refreshments at 7.30pm, the programme will start at 8pm and will always be finished by 9.30pm.
    • March 5th       Life is for Living    
    • March 12th     Oh my God!
    • March 19th     Jesus who?
    • March 26th     What’s gone wrong?

Build on the Rock

You are invited to a Lent Group in Chearsley on Wednesday evenings from 8.00 to 9.30 pm.
“Build on the Rock” starts by looking at faith and doubt. Is it wrong – or is it normal and healthy  - for a Christian to have doubts?  Is there any evidence for a God who loves us? We hear from many witnesses. At the heart of a Christian answer stands Jesus himself. We consider his “strange and beautiful story”, and reflect on his teaching, his death, his resurrection and his continuing significance.
    • 12/3           Believing and doubting
    • 19/3           Jesus - our teacher
    • 26/3           Jesus - our saviour
    • 2/4             Jesus - conqueror of death
    • 9/4             Jesus - Lord and brother
Please contact Geoff on 201197 or  for more information.
